They Sent Their Son

I hope you all are having a happy Christmas. I chose He Sent His Son by Mabel Jones Gabbott to be our Christmas song. Because of the repetitions of "He sent his Son..." I alternated the pronouns between He and She, and also changed "men" to "us."

They Sent Their Son

How could the Father tell the world of love and tenderness?
He sent his Son, a newborn babe, with peace and holiness.

How could the Mother show the world the pathway we should go?
She sent her Son to walk with us, on earth, that we may know.

How could the Father tell the world of sacrifice, of death?
He sent his Son to die for us and rise with living breath.

What does the Mother ask of us? What do the scriptures say?
Have faith, have hope, live like her Son, help others on their way.

What do they ask?
Live like their Son.
