Meekness and majesty, manhood and deity,
in perfect harmony, the man who is God:
Lord of eternity dwells in humanity,
kneels in humility, and washes our feet.

Oh, what a mystery, meekness and majesty:
bow down and worship, for this is your God,
this is your God!

Father’s pure radiance, perfect in innocence,
yet learns obedience to death on a cross:
suffering to give us life, conquering through sacrifice;
and, as they crucify, prays ‘Father, forgive.’
Oh what a mystery…

Wisdom unsearchable, God the invisible,
Love indestructible in frailty appears.
Lord of infinity, stooping so tenderly,
lifts our humanity to the heights of his throne.
Oh what a mystery…
this is your God!
