It’s fundamental and foundational
And its where good seed is sown;
It’s life-changing and transformational
And where faith and love is grown.
It’s the only piece of literature
That can save our soul within,
Because faith will come by hearing
With the hope and life it brings.
The gospel of our Jesus Christ
Is so simple and pure indeed,
That He died for our sins and rose again
So eternal life we see.
Once this seed is planted
In our heart it should bring change,
As it transforms and it renews our mind
Where doubts no longer will remain.
Only the gospel has the power
To reconcile us to the Lord,
Because it’s God love letter to us all;
It’s His inspired word.
The gospel melts the hardest heart;
Humbles the proudest of them all,
Because it refreshes the soul with plenty of hope
When our name the Lord will call.
Many books will inform us
But only the bible can transform,
Because it’s God’s healing touch upon our soul
As it corrects, instructs and warns.
Plenty of music can calm our soul
But it’s the gospel songs that absorb,
To bring a sweet smelling aroma to our heart
When we listen to God’s word.
There are many sources that do inspire
Whether they’re written or in songs,
But it’s the gospel that will pierce the heart
With what we’ve needed all along.
Only the gospel will satisfy
The insatiable hunger within,
Because it fills our soul with the required peace
That only Christ’s sacrifice can bring.
It’s reassuring and bridges the gap
Between us and the Heavenly Father,
It inspires us to walk the walk
Knowing there is a here-after.
Only the gospel will save our soul
Because it was the cross at Calvary,
That reconciles us to the Father
So eternal life we see.
