Do you know what the gospel is,
The gospel means good news.
Good news for you, and you my friend,
So listen and don't refuse.
Just listen to His Word, to His Word
And you'll see that Jesus Christ came
To make you free.

There was a child named Jesus
Born of Virgin birth
In the city of David, though His home
Was not of this world.
His goings forth are from long ago,
From the days of eternity
He came as the light into the world
Through Him all men might see.

The spirit of the Lord was upon Him,
And He preached the good news to the poor.
He said blessed are you poor in spirit,
For the Kingdom of Heaven is yours.
Do you see your need for Him as I did,
Do you see that Jesus Christ came
To make you free?

He healed the sick and he raised the dead,
And set free those who were oppressed.
He said come to me all who are weary,
And I will give you rest.
He spoke of Heaven and He spoke of Hell,
And He urged all men to repent.
To give His live as a ransom for all
Was the reason He was sent.

But He was despised and forsaken of man,
A man of sorrow and grief.
Fulfilling the words that were spoken of Him,
They pierced His hands and His feet.
On the cross He died for them, died for you,
Died for me, Jesus Christ died to set us free.

And so this is the good news for you,
That Jesus Christ can save.
The power of death couldn't hold my Lord,
He rose from the grave.
And He is alive for evermore
And forever is able to save.
Those who draw near to God through Him,
He's the life the truth and the way.
