There is no greater love, than the love that God has shown us.

Although, when it happens,

his heart always breaks.

Jesus forgives

all our mistakes.

 

When you sincerely ask him,

he will surely let it go,

It's his gracious love for us,

that he wants us to know.

 

He gave up his life,

just for you, and just for me,

so that we may live,

Life, eternally.

 

Because now that we are found,

when once we were lost,

we took our precious lord,

and nailed him to the cross.

 

And now he is just waiting,

for you and I to choose,

whether to join the fight,

will we win or lose?

 

He died for the world,

and all it's evil lies,

the world was then cleansed,

when he closed his eyes.

 

"How much do you love me?"

I asked him, feeling lost.

He said, "I love you this much,"

and he died upon the cross.
