“Christ’s Life to Us” by Gary R. Hess

He sacrificed himself for the greater good
with his life spent preachin’,
and his life worth rememberin’
We pray to him,
and we talk to him
about our sufferin’
to cure us of this pain
in hope he returns again.

And in this life,
this pain is hard,
so take it all away
and take this life
and make it yours.

Without him…
we are tired.
Without him…
there’s no grace.
Take us
and let us spend our life
following your word
