COME . . . FOLLOW ME
Before time began HE had you on HIS mind; HE loved you first way before there was time.
He created all things all that our eyes see; the mountains and forest, every fish in the sea.
The eagles which soar and the sparrows that sing, sparkling rivers that flow, the storms and the breeze.
HE came down to the earth to be born a man to die on a cross, a perfect pure lamb.
Without the shedding of blood there would be no remission for sin; there was no other way, it had to be HIM.
As you know HE was born the LIGHT we would find, He calmed the sea and HE opened blind eyes, HE chose to die for the sins of mankind.
HE rose from the dead as HE said that HE would; so we could be free; yes our FATHER is good.
HE said; “Take up your cross all you who believe; I’ll be with you forever; come, follow me.”
So repent and be broken we must be born anew, forget the excuses of the bad which you do.
Our FATHER wants those who will choose to do right; who worship in spirit and truth by HIS might; children who walk by the day, not by night.
Come follow JESUS who won’t lead us astray, The TRUTH and the LIFE the Only WAY.
To a place HE’S prepared, our heavenly home. Where no wars will be and sin cannot come in, joy unbelievable; where tears will not flow.
HE said, “Oh! How I love you with ME you can be, let go of the world and come follow me.”
