The Greatest Story Ever Told, in Verse


Once was a world that was void
And dark were the waters therein
Then Majesty moved on the deep
And life in existence was spoken

With care and for glory He fashioned
Out of spirit, and body and soul
Like Him a creature of sentience
In fellowship with Him made whole

But pride broke the bond He created
And torn was the fellowship sweet
Cursed was the life He intended
For the man whose heart He made beat

The creature no longer immortal
For death by the curse on him fell
Judgement for man’s pride had ruined
Man’s Life and his children as well

Yet Love would not be defeated
So precious to God were all men
The son volunteered to pay penance
And restore to good standing again

A plan was put into production
Great love through the ages made known
By death the Son purchased redemption
Greater love had never been shown

For love such sinless perfection
Made sin and was laid in the grave
But glory could not be denied Him
By His Father from death He was raised

Now we preach a glorious message
How man can be saved from his sin
Salvation to those who will ask it
Confessing and recieving Him in
