Music for Children, Submitted Music (2007-2011)

A man of sorrows, Jesus came

To conquer sin and death for man,

That by the power of His name

We might fulfill the father’s plan.

Though He has drunk our bitter cup,

And for our sake His blood was shed,

He is not here, but risen up;

Seek not the living with the dead!


Chorus:  He was lifted on the cross

That he might lift us to the Father,

He has risen from the tomb

That through Him we so may rise.


In the beginning was the Word,

The Christ who made the Earth and sky,

The Father’s power was conferred

That He should live and choose to die.

He comprehended every pain,

Knew every weakness, every sin,

For only He could break the chains

And bring the captives home again.


And when in sorrow we in prayer

Approach the Father willingly

To overcome temptation’s snare

Or to endure adversity,

The Holy Ghost can heal our soul,

For the atonement paid the price.

The Savior came to make us whole:

O come receive the living Christ!
