Dave Hunt – When Love Came Down

Heads up! This post was published about 13 years ago.

Thanks to my friend Pete, I recently came across Stuart Townend‘s song “When Love Came Down” as performed by Dave Hunt on his album Love Abounds. As soon as I heard it, I knew it needed to be a part of our Good Friday service.

“When Love Came Down to Earth”
Words & music by Stuart Townend

When Love came down to earth and made His home with man
The hopeless found a hope, the sinner found a friend
Not to the powerful, but to the poor He came
And humble, hungry hearts were satisfied in Him

What joy, what peace has come to us
What hope, what help, what love

When every unclean thought and every sinful deed
Was scourged upon his back and hammered through his feet
The Innocent is cursed, the guilty are released
The punishment of God on God has brought me peace

Come lay your heavy load down at the Master’s feet
Your shame will be removed, your joy will be complete
Come crucify your pride and enter as a child
For those who bow down low He’ll lift up to His side
