J is for Jesus, he’s alive from the dead,
That’s why the Bible declares him be Lord,
He conquered sin, and death and hell,
For all who trust him, their end will be well.
E is for eternal, life that don’t end,
A gift to faith, to all their knee bend;
Life from the death of the Son of God,
Who suffered the cross, his blood to shed.
S is for sinners, all men without doubt,
Come short of God’s glory, God’s way cast out;
For such Jesus came he loved them so much,
He paid the price, to add ’em to his church.
U is for us, yes, that’s you me,
We all stand before God without one plea;
Only in Jesus in the grace of God’s love,
Made one with God, fit for heaven above.
S is for sure, the work it’s been done,
All’s left for us, is to enter in;
Repent of your sin, believe in God’s Son,
Assured of his glory, and the end of sin.
