When Jesus Christ was on the earth
so many years ago,
He taught our Heav’nly Father’s plan
For children here below.
Through parables, with simple words,
He said, “Come, follow me,”
That we might now have joy on earth
And live eternally.
That Easter morn, disciples ran
to see where Jesus lay;
And there they saw a miracle:
The stone was rolled away!
He came for us; He died for us—
All to fulfill our Father’s plan.
On Calvary, Gethsemane,
He sacrificed that we might live again.
