Mercy for All
There was a Man who walked a road;
What would happen was foretold.
To the top He slowly strove;
The heavy cross was such a load.
On the cross, He was thrown,
But without one broken bone.
Spikes were driven into His hands,
By the hammers of satan’s fans.
The cross was plunged into the ground;
It made a mighty and horrible sound.
There He hung for a few short hours;
While, He, the Almighty released His powers.
In a tomb He was laid;
He calmly slept for three short days.
On the third He rose again;
With VICTORY over death, He did win!
He ascended to the throne;
Before He calls His children home.
Jesus is our true, true Friend;
He’ll be with us to the end.
The end will come so very soon;
When the saints shall reign beyond the moon!
In heaven, we’ll be forevermore,
To live with Jesus on that shore!
