No Greater Love



Pain, deceit, and sorrow
Here today,gone tomorrow
Blood, death,and salvation
Was shed and given for every nation
 
Pain cannot begin to testify
What he went through
He was beaten and crucified
To bridge the way for you

Deceit from a friend
Cost him his life
Which in the end
Gives us eternal life!

Sorrow was expressed
In the saviors final hour
His love was put to the test
And shown in his awesome power!

Blood fell down his face
From his back, hands, and feet
His blood offers us grace
Now the father we can now meet

Death came in its awful victory
And took the life of our savior Jesus,conquered death, a triumphant victory Oh what a feat for the mighty Warrior

Salvation comes to those
Who believe in Christ's resurrection
And believes His blood was shed for those Who want to accept His salvation!
