The Good News
When you compromise and give in to your gravest sin,
and you realize that itís not what you thought it would be,
When you look within your heart and abhor the blackest parts,
and wonder who can cleanse and make you free.
When you tremble at the thought of all the pain and grief youíve wrought,
When you think that itís the end, think again my friend
and you shudder down to your very soul,
With horror at your shame, you realize that youíre to blame,
and you long to be forgiven and made whole.
Jesus died upon the cross for you and me
He was our sacrifice for sin. He died and rose again
so that we could have peace with God eternally.
Our sins deserve the wrath of God entire in the eternal lake of fire,
If you need another reason; remember sinís pleasures only last a season
but there is yet a better way.
Jesus Christ offered Himself in our place, and by repentance and faith,
we can be reconciled to God this very day.
but the joys of Heaven last forevermore.
If you forsake your life of sin, and you want to enter in
Jesus, the Son of God, is the only door.
The Bible still proclaims today: Jesus Christ is the only way
I urge you: hear the Gospel and believe, and Jesus Christ receive.
you canít get to Heaven any old way you choose.
Your good works wonít earn you a place, itís a gift solely by Godís grace
freely offered to all, now thatís Good News!
Become a child of God this very hour.
Commit yourself to the Lord. Let Him transform you by His Word
and behold Godís life-changing power.
