Because of Jesus Christ
The atonement has been made.
The world has been made right
With the price of man’s sins paid!
The fearful spectacle of death
Yields all the dead unto paradise.
Assuring, we will resurrect!
The body and spirit both will rise!
He, who has marked the narrow way,
Invites us to come follow Him.
He promises His spirit always
As we keep all God’s laws for man.

Though the years roll by, His birth, His ministry, His legacy continue to guide the destiny of all who follow Him as He so invitingly urged.”
