A Man Named Jesus
One day I met a man named Jesus
by Mary Bowman
And he told me He's God's only son
He said he is the way, truth and life
And he died on the cross for everyone.
He said he has the keys to hell
And has victory over the grave
He said all power is in his hands
And if I believed I could be saved.
I wondered why he ever cared about me
Since I had done so many awful sins
But he told me he would wash them all away
And still be my very best friend.
He said his home is in heaven right now
But he is coming back to earth once again
The reason he was raised from the dead
Was to live in the hearts of faithful men.
