The Savior

                                              Many long years ago
                                              in a town called Bethleham
                                              a baby boy was born
                                              a precious, little lamb

                                              Sent by God's own grace
                                              to save the world from sin
                                              a gift of undying love
                                              from heaven did descend

                                              From a tiny child he grew
                                              in this world he did trod
                                              spreading wonders did abound
                                              from this Savior sent by God

                                              A shining light to all
                                              each road that he walked down
                                              resisting the works of destruction
                                              he wore a shining crown

                                              He came not to call the righteous
                                              but the sinners to repentance
                                              from his father's hand above
                                              he was led by love and guidance

                                              He set forth a fine example
                                              for all the world to see
                                              to follow in his footsteps
                                              and do the things as he

                                              For God so loved the world
                                              he gave his only son
                                              that who so ever believeth
                                              their soul shall be won

                                              So pick up thy rod and staff
                                              and follow him each new day
                                              just know in heaven we'll live
                                              it's just a prayer away
