For God So Loved the World – He Gave His Only Begotten Son for US – for You and Me –

Crucifix on a WallWe are the ones for whom HE died –
I am the one – You are the one –
Why did God care – Why –
Why not forget us –
Make a new world –
Find other
Love –

For God so loved the World – He gave His beloved Son –
God is LOVE – He so loved the World –
LOVE never fails – NEVER fails –
His man Adam failed –
God knew before
And planned
Redemption –

Planned redemption before He made us –
Yes – He made us anyway –
Love prevails – Never fails –
Jesus – Second Adam –
Fulfilled the Law
Broke the curse
For us –

We are the ones for whom HE died –
I am the one – You are the one –
Engraved upon His palms forever –
We are loved – though some don’t
Know – Do you know
You are
Loved –

In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace…
