The Life of Christ

  1. The Life of Christ

    I wrote this one several years back. It is sung to the tune of Kenny Rogers' "Coward of the County"

    1.
    The Son left the Father's side to be born in a manger
    That prophecy might be fulfilled about a coming King
    His mother named Him Jesus as she was instructed
    And then they fled to Egypt because of Joseph's dream.

    2.
    He was only twelve years old when they found Him in the Temple
    There He read the Holy Word to scribes and pharisees
    All that were around Him marveled at His answers
    For none that age had ever spoke with such authority.

    cho.
    Yes, God gave His Son to die for sinful man
    To hang one day upon a rugged tree
    The blood that Jesus shed was in Salvation's plan
    Give Jesus Christ your heart and then receive
    Eternal life is yours if you believe.

    3.
    A prophet has no honor when he is with his people
    And so they sought to kill Him before He would be King
    Judas sold the Master out to the Roman soldiers
    A purse full of silver coins was what they paid for Him

    4.
    Jesus spoke not a word when He stood in Herod's hallway
    They beat on Him, they plucked His beard and put thorns on His head
    Then they led the Savior up Calvary's hill for slaughter
    There He died on a rugged cross, for the world His blood was shed.

    cho.
    Yes, God gave His Son to die for sinful man
    To hang one day upon a rugged tree
    The blood that Jesus shed was in Salvation's plan
    Give Jesus Christ your heart and then receive
    Eternal life is yours if you believe.

    5.
    They placed Him in a borrowed tomb, satan thought "I've beat Him!"
    But then He rose from the dead to live forevermore
    He's seated at the right hand of His loving Father
    And soon we shall meet them over on the other shore.

    cho.
