I HAVE OFTEN HEARD

I have often heard of sinful things that people do
I have often heard how they crucified you, too
I have often heard how you rose from Satan's grave
Many sinful men -- like me -- to save
How I'm glad eternal life you gave

I have often seen the way that people put you down
I have often seen pictures of your thorny crown
I have often seen how they nailed you to a cross to die
Thinking you would never live again
Praise the Lord! Your resurrection came

I have often felt a burning deep inside my soul
I have often felt gladness knowing you have made me whole
I have often felt love and peace flow from above
Holy Spirit falling like a dove
How I need you more and more to love
