Love Won the Fight
Copyright – 2005 Universal/MCA Music GmbH
Made in God’s image they were queen and king
Meant to be rulers over everything.
Reaching to be like God instead they fell,
Opening the gates of sin and death and hell.
Curse of Adam, mark of Cain,
Our paradise lost to conflict and pain.
Famine, drought, endless wars, disease
Once proud, now on our knees.
And can it be the King has come to earth
King of all kings and Lord of all from birth?
Emptied himself of all but love to be
The perfect sacrifice at Calvary.
Was he God, as he claimed to be,
The author of life, nailed to a tree?
Where was justice, where was love,
Some sign from God above?
Cold, his body laid within the tomb,
Hope was dead replaced by fear and doom,
Then, in a moment in a burst of light
Death was vanquished love had won the fight!
