Verse 1
Jesus, who lived above the sky,
Came down to be a Man and die;
And in the Bible we may see
How very good He used to be.

Verse 2
He went about --- He was so kind ---
To cure poor people who were blind;
And many who were sick and lame,
He pitied them and did the same.

Verse 3
And more than that, He told them, too,
The things that God would have them do;
And was so gentle and so mild,
He would have listened to a child.

Verse 4
But such a cruel death He died!
He was hung up and crucified!
And those kind Hands that did such good
They nailed them to a Cross of wood.

Verse 5
And so He died! --- and this is why
He came to be a Man and die!
The Bible says He came from Heaven
That we might have our sins forgiven.

Verse 6
He knew how wicked man had been.
And knew that God must punish sin;
So, out of pity, Jesus said
He'd bear the punishment instead.

Verse 7
Our God will pardon, still forgive
All those who repent of their sins
So let us early seek Thy face,
Obtain the fullness of Thy grace.
