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.
