O, Jesus is the Cornerstone
The most important building Stone
The Rock on which we build our life
The life which may be full of strife
Jesus is our Friend, indeed
The only one the sinner needs
Jesus knows our every care
He, our anxious grief will share.
Jesus is our dwelling place
His love can fill our empty space.
He understands the human cry
He’s there to mind each earthly sigh.
He’s the Bright and Morning Star
He comforts you where e’er you are
This life is but a stepping stone
For those who want a real home
A place where love is all around
Where life is on the solid ground.
And Jesus is our answer still
Amongst the strife of human will
For Jesus died upon the tree
That sinners’ lives could then be free
We cannot even know the cost
That Jesus paid upon that cross.
Jesus is the great “I AM”
He always is the One Who can –
Can lift our spirits from within
Spirits that are freed from sin.
Godly life or earthly life
One is good, one is strife
Live for self, you die alone
You could have a heavenly home!
Home where everything is right
Home where there is no more night
Home where Jesus is the Light
And where sin is out of sight.
Did I explain about God’s plan…
To deal with all the sins of man?
Jesus came and died, alone
For all man’s sin, He did atone
Here’s the choice God gave to all;
Believe in Christ… Answer the call.
Give your life to Christ alone
And welcome to your heavenly home.
When you chose Christ, you chose it all…
You answered God’s forgiving call.
If you chose your own life and way
Then God above must have His say.
Heaven’s doors are open wide
To all who choose the Savior’s side,
Should not the universe be shown
Who is in charge and on the Throne?
Could God let just one sinner in
And the heavenly home be touched with sin?
No… God left His Gift intact
For all those who by their act
Received the Christ, Who died for all
Who made themselves sinful and small…
And took the Christ into their life
And ended sin’s eternal strife.
So earthly-minded, listen clear…
The moment of your choice is here,
Take God’s gift – the Gift is free
For all who believe – eternity.
For heaven’s for those who have believed –
And Christ Jesus, they received.
