How Could You?

Ah world, how could you turn your head
      When Jesus came to Earth

Ah world, how could you turn your head
      When Jesus came to Earth
Ignore–despise–the miracle
      The wonder of His birth?

How could you close your stubborn ears
      To all He had to say
How could you blind your seeing eyes
      To miracles each day?

How could you send Him to the Cross
      To suffer, bleed, and die?
Ah world, it was the Lamb of God
      You there did crucify!

Today your hardened hearts still close
      To what He came to do
Oh World, repent, acknowledge Him
      His blood was shed for you!
