From Bethlehem to Calvary (Killpack)


From Bethlehem to Calvary (Killpack)

Music for Choirs, Submitted Music (1992-1997)

From Bethlehem to Calvary He was the Son of God.

He Showed the Way of Righteousness The Faithful Saints Have Trod.

This Jesus Christ of Nazareth: born in a manger’s stall.

Creator of the Universe, descends to save us all.

 

Ten Lepers sought his healing hands. He touched them, healed them all.

A Woman in her sins, condemned, He raised up from her fall.

The widow mourned her only son. In love he shared her pain.

He spoke the word; restored the son from death to life again.

 

He bled. He died at Calvary. He bore the sins of men.

He visited the imprisoned souls then rose to life again.

Come, let us heed the Savior’s call. Come, let us be his friend.

Come, let us live in righteousness and serve him to the end.
