He wore a crown of piercing thorns, that I might walk streets of gold.
He sweat drops of crimson blood, yet the half has never been told.
Imagine the pain, when three rusty nails, held Him to the tree!
He suffered through it all, for sins committed by you and me.
If that were the end of the story, there still would be no hope.
Our empty hearts would have no refuge, no way that we could cope!
Satan claimed a victory, as Christ was laid in a sealed tomb.
Had the story ended there, our sad hearts would be filled with gloom.
But, Jesus broke through Satanís chains, paying the price for our sin,
Making the way possible, to be cleansed completely within!
All He asks is our commitment, to live totally for Him.
Heíll fill our lives with purpose and joy, no longer, life will be grim!
There is coming a day when our work on earth will be complete.
Weíll go to be with our Jesus, and sit at His precious feet!
Not until then, will all the details, and all the truths unfold.
Yet Godís Word reveals all that we need, to walk those streets of gold!
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
