Before the time when man fell into sin
God had another kind of Man in mind,
Suited in acts to what God’s loved designed
Because His mind conformed to God’s within.
Before man’s reign of sinfulness and pride
God had another kind of Man in mind -
A lowly Man, unselfish, always kind,
On whom the Holy Spirit could abide.
Before my sinful nature showed its force
God had another kind of man in mind,
Who gave power to the lame, sight to the blind,
And in Himself answered my sinful course.
And now I learn - before the world began
God’s love and wisdom chose me in that Man.
