Good Life

Jesus Was His Name

Without hesitation

He went up on the cross

to save the soul of man

His own life would be the cost.

He didn't do it for glory

nor did He do it for fame

But rather His love of man

Jesus was His name.

They beat Him without mercy

as they laughed and made fun.

They heckled Him to come down

if He was truly God's son?

Darkness covered the land

and He cried out to say,

"My God why have you forsaken me?"

Then He slowly passed away.

He was placed in a tomb

but there He would not stay

for our Lord would rise again

on that first Easter day.

He lives on today

deep within our hearts.

For through the gift of His love

He gave us a new start.
