This Child

From the Grrr Records album Ripley County Blues (Glenn Kaiser, 2002):

This Child is unlike any other you have known
This Child is destined to the homeless and the throne
This Child is for the rising and the falling of us all
This Child, this Jesus, He cries and He calls

This Lamb born into a cruel and calloused world
This Lamb among the poor and the outcast as a pearl
This Lamb fully loved and fully hated by name
This holy, spotless Lamb bears our sorrow and our shame

The King of kings, the Lord of lords
The Wisdom and the Knowledge of God
The Everlasting Father
The Son of Righteousness
The Prince of Peace, possesses me
And all that I possess
