Jesus Loves You
Twas’ the night Jesus came,
and all through the house,
not a person was praying,
not one in the house.

He spoke not a word as he searched for my name,

the coming of Jesus is now drawing near.
There’s only one life and when comes the last call,
We’ll find out that the Bible was true after all…
