JESUS



JESUS

Two thousand years ago in Bethlehem was born a tiny boy
Heralded by the angels, to the world he brought joy.

Peace on Earth, Good will to men the angels did proclaim,
God sent His son to earth and Jesus is His name.

He’s precious and he’s sweet, a gentle little boy,
He’s God’s only son and his mother’s pride and joy

Can this little baby be the King of Kings that was foretold?
Is why the Wise men came, to bring him gifts and gold?

They’d heard the prophecy proclaim a mighty King would come,
But who have thought this little babe would be God’s Son?

Why would God love us enough to send His only Son?
How could our salvation be by this little baby won?

This same little child that in a manger lay,
Will one day be the one that takes our sin away?

He’ll give up His life like no other man
Just to fulfill His Father’s salvation plan.

This child that came so humble and sweet,
Will have nails placed in His hands and feet.

He’ll die on the cross for you and for me,
His blood will be shed so we can be free.

He’ll rise from the dead to forever live again
This little babe that can forgive our sin.

He came as a baby, He died as a man
He’ll return as King of Kings when he comes again!

King of Kings and Lord of Lords, Mighty one is He.
He came to earth to live and die just for you and me.
