The Greatest Story Ever Told!

by Edward Nickerson

In the name of Jesus we can share unending.
The greatest story man has ever told.
He died upon a cruel cross to save me.
He promised me an eternal mansion bold!

One day we'll gaze upon His face forever,
When His tears will shape the memories of us all.
His victory over sin, and death, and sorrow,
Redemption, through God Son was paid for all.
The thorns that pierced his brow because he loved me.
On the cross my sin he bore that fateful day.
Beyond those city walls, he payed so freely,
There hung between to thieves, His life He'd pay.

One day we'll gaze upon His face forever,
When His tears will shape the memories of us all.
His victory over sin, and death, and sorrow,
Redemption, through God Son was paid for all.

Through His hands they drove the nails of guilt and evil.
To fasten God the Son to redeem Salvations plan.
But nails and wood and rope could not restrain Him.
He'd die for me to save me from sins hand.

One day we'll gaze upon His face forever,
When His tears will shape the memories of us all.
His victory over sin, and death, and sorrow,
Redemption, through God Son was paid for all.

His side they pierced forth shedding blood and water.
Both symbols of God's heart that lay within.
His body bruised and beat yet blessed with honor.
To purchase us heavens new place to begin!

His nail scarred feet so damaged by the soldiers,
Would no longer serve his body on that day.
On that cross He died yet rose again for others.
He's seated now with God showing us the way.

Don't forget his heart, there's no ending to this story.
His love for you and me nailed to that tree.
Invite Him in you live and praise His name forever.
He shall return to rescue souls like me.
