The atonement is just cause for astonishment;
It served three Divine purposes in one act.
It is acclaimed by all for its reconciliation,
The act of God and man's restoration to harmony,
By the life, sufferings and death of Christ.
The second wonder reveals God to mankind,
Through the presentation of His human form.
In the body of Jesus Christ, God became known,
For Jesus was the distinctive person of God.
God the Father uncovered His concealed identity,
Wherefore announcing the Trinity of His Divinity.
The third wonder revealed God's love for mankind
In the abatement of His perfect spiritual nature
To that of a temporary earthly physical form.
Through the glory of His infinite love,
God willed the revelation of creation's design:
His Kingdom, His Divine plan, His endless reward,
His infinite power, and His righteous teachings.
