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.
