ART & POETRY BY PAUL & KATHY BOECHER©
You came to a world filled with darkness and sin,
You loved us devoutly without and within,
Your love conquered all through a child meek and small,
Sweet Jesus, Your Son came and died for us all.
You took away sadness and filled us with peace,
You give us a hope that defies life’s surcease,
You gave Your life for us so we could be free,
Sweet Jesus, Your blood you did shed on the tree.
Your body lay lifeless, but rose on that day,
To show us our sins have been carried away,
So now we look forward to that special time,
Sweet Jesus to join you in heaven sublime.
We know you’ll return to carry us home,
To empty the darkness of this world that we roam,
Be with us forever and love us each day,
Sweet Jesus, we love you, come quickly and stay.
