Jesus Christ, a Maverick

JESUS CHRIST, A MAVERICK

He hailed from Nazareth, a carpenter's son
The world would be changed ere He was done
He ate with tax collectors and sinners
Made many enemies among the Sanhedrin

He cured the sick and healed the blind
A more compassionate Man than you'll ever find
Made the lame to walk, the deaf to hear
Caused the mute to speak and demons to fear

Taught in parables and calmed the sea
Walked on the water of Lake Galilee
By exclaiming, "Come forth", He raised the dead
The Pharisees and Saducees were filled with dread

A plot was formed, He stood accused
Liars and false witnesses were who they used
They spat in His face, crowned Him with thorns
Mocked Him, beat Him, laughed Him to scorn

He was nailed to a cross -- crucified
Father, forgive them was what He cried
He shed His blood for the remission of sin
Gave up the ghost, but death didn't win

He was lovingly buried in a borrowed tomb
Burst forth on the third day like a babe from the womb
Ascended to Heaven after forty days
Seated at God's right hand, worthy of praise

He alone can save you from sin
Open your heart, let Him come in
It is appointed unto man once to die
But you can spend eternity with Him on high
 
The choice you make is yours alone
Where will you spend eternity
It's not too late to choose
What will be your answer to Him
