The Ransom

What is the meaning of life, you may ask.
To live and then die, is that your only task?
Nothing makes sense if we live life that way,
Just why are we here to be gone the next day.

Well, there’s an explanation which will help you to see
That life is not futile, that  we’ve been set free.
A  ransom was paid, in order for us
To receive a new life on this earth and thus

If we live for Him who died for our sake,
We will be rewarded in due time, so let’s make
Our lives have meaning in all that we do.
Love men of all sorts it’s all up to you.
