I sat today and talked with him
A man we all need to know
With long brown hair
And eyes as black as coal.
We talked of love and his life
And how he laid it down
On wooden beams with rusty nails
For the entire world to see.
He lived and died for all of us
To wash away our sins
He gave his life for all mankind
For salvation in the end.
And after three days he rose again
From the tomb they put him in
Just to prove to all of us
That he is our Lord and King.
Today I walked with him and we talked about his love
And the day he gave his life on us
Upon that Wooden Cross
And if you wish to know his name
It’s Jesus Christ my friend.
