Jesus was born to die

With joy the chorus we’ll repeat
‘Glory to God on high!
Good-will and peace are now complete —
Jesus was born to die.’

—A. Campbell’s hymnal, Psalm 5

I’ve used similar phrasing as the last line in the above stanza. What a wonderful truth it is, even though it sounds shocking.

What say you?
