IF ONLY…

If I had a cure for cancer

You’d be knocking on my door,

Perhaps plead for the solution

And no doubt be back for more.

If I had the winning numbers

Of the lottery in mind,

You’d beg for the combination

To leave your poverty behind.

If I had the key to happiness

You’d be standing next in line,

Eager for the perpetual answer

To leave your miseries behind.

If I cracked the code to eternal life

Where no death you’ll ever see,

Most likely I’d become very rich

As there’d be no limit to my fee.

I have some very good news indeed

As there’s an answer to all the above…

Perhaps not in the way you would expect

But nevertheless with love.

There is a cure for cancer

It’s a spiritual one indeed;

It’s when our sickly soul is healed

From its autoimmunity.

The winning numbers do exist

But not found in the lottery;

It’s when Christ stamps His name and number

On our forehead in eternity.

There is the key to happiness

Its true riches are in Christ;

When we open our heart to God

And love Him with all our might.

And the code to eternal life

Was cracked as Jesus was crucified;

So we can avoid the second death

As Christ becomes Lord of our lives.
