[Continuing the hymn-for-Sundays series]
It’s the greatest message, and it’s true.
It’s for all the world, – and for me and you.
It’s about the greatest King – and why,
Why King Jesus came to die.
So why was he born in Bethlehem?
and why did he teach and heal, and then
just why did he let them kill him, – why?
To rescue me, he had to die.
Now Jesus lives, come follow him,
for the greatest love from the greatest King,
with sins forgiven – God’s news is this –
an offer that’s too great to miss.
Tune of ‘He’s got the whole world in his hands’
