EXCUSES

If you are not sure of the future,
And things have been tough in the past
I bring you this comforting message:
Your sins are forgiven at last

For, there is a Saviour named Jesus
Who bore all our sins on a cross
He died so that sinners just like you and I
Would never be lonely and lost

Jesus, the son of the Father --
Creator of Heaven and Earth
Redeemed us forever with His sacrifice,
I wonder if you know its worth

What must you do to be saved
is something you might well inquire
Believe on the Saviour -- Lord Jesus --
He'll lift you right out of the mire

With God, all things are possible
With God, all things are true
Behold, old things are passed away
Behold, things change to new


You may say you'll take Jesus some day,
But the Bible says now is the time
Now is the day of salvation for you,
Tomorrow the death-knell may chime

You may think you're too good to perish,
But the Bible says all men have sinned
And fall short of the glory of God,
So you see our souls must soon be disciplined

And you won't reach Heaven through good works,
Sincerity isn't what counts
By grace are ye saved through faith, not of works,
And of your life you will give account

You may think you're too full of sin,
That Jesus may just pass you by
He came to save sinners just like you and I,
I've told you that's the reason He died

With God, all things are possible
With God, all things are true
Behold, old things are passed away
Behold, things change to new


Is there so much you don't understand,
The Bible can answer that, too
If any man follow God's will then he'll know
The doctrine of Lord Jesus, too

You won't get a second chance later,
It's appointed for men to die once
And when you're in heaven ,
'Tis God who will judge; I wonder what will be your response

If you've had an unfulfilled life,
Jesus can change it for you
He loves you, He loves me, and I love you, too;
I know He'll do wonders for you

No religion will get you to heaven,
There is only one sure-footed way
Jesus -- the Way and the Truth and the Life
Open your heart, accept him today

With God, all things are possible
With God, all things are true
Behold, old things are passed away
Behold, things change to new
