Gentle Jesus, Son of God.

Gentle Jesus, Son of God, Saviour of the world,
You came to us and walked this life alone.
You give to us the way of life eternal with The Lord,
You show us all the way to get back home.
You never said we’d have it easy, persecuted You said we’d be,
Hated and despised for our belief.
But You gave us prayer and left Your Word, for us to meditate,
You sent The Spirit so we could gain relief.
Each day is hard but we have You, to remind us how to be,
You were tested in the desert for 40 days.
There isn’t anything that You can’t understand,
You lived and breathed and struggled in our ways.
So, we CAN turn to You and know You understand,
Every trial that we go through, You felt upon that sand.
You trod the path before us and showed us what to do,
So every time we struggle, we just turn and look to You.
You love us so completely, you’ve prepared for us a place,
We don’t have to earn it, we are accept through Your Grace.
But in our love and gratitude we serve You willingly,
And we Thank You for Your Sacrifice to set us children free.
