I am making it known to you,
The Good News as already told;
In which your faith is based as true,
As the story was to unfold.
You have been saved by this Gospel,
If you hold onto what has been taught;
And to spread to other people,
For all the love that they have sought.
If you believe without thinking,
The passion of the Lord means naught;
Like on sinking sand and sinking,
For not realizing what it brought.
I passed onto you crucial points,
Of doctrine that I have received;
That the blood of Jesus anoints,
If in truth you firmly believed.
Jesus Christ died to take away,
Our sins as the Scriptures said;
From temptation that makes you stray,
Being caused by Satan that fed.
As virgin born within the womb,
And brought up in a human form;
From the cross then placed in a tomb,
Bringing peace after the storm.
Jesus Christ was brought back to life,
Seen by five hundred believers;
After suffering through the strife,
As they were all made receivers.
As a child untimely born,
Given life He appeared to me;
Soon in Heaven I will sojourn,
In front of Jesus I will see.
I am persecuted in this life,
Because of all my love of Christ;
But His kindness helps through the strife,
For all that I have sacrificed.
So whether someone else or me,
This is the message that I bring;
Trusting in what I cannot see,
Unto the cross I will cling.
