He was only a man, so some say;
And those who followed him were fools, so some say.
As he hung on the cross rejected and scorned,
His God would forsake Him, so some say.
But the one called Jesus had a plan
To prove to the world he was not "just a man."
He died on the cross that you and I might live,
His life for our life--what more cold He give?
Forsake Him, you say? God made Him a King.
He arose from the grave and now walks among men.
By faith you shall know Him and then you will find
that the man called Jesus is a ruler divine.

I wandered alone in the valley of sin;
My life was so empty till Jesus came in.
He took all my burdens, my soul he set free,
And lifted me higher so my blind eyes could see.
I now walk beside Him, I trust in his love,
And soon I'll be with Him in heaven above.
