STRENGTH IN A SMILE
Vast was the love that God did show
When His Son was sent to us here below…
He sent Him to pay sin’s great price,
The Lamb of God–our sacrifice.
They beat and nailed Him to a tree,
Scorned by the world for all to see…
With all the mercy that was in Him
He cried, “Father…forgive them!”
For my sins He took my place
That I may no longer live disgrace…
I can look any man in the eye,
I’m now a son of God Most High!
My Lord and God has called me His own,
He loves me and I’ll never be alone…
When troubles visit me for a while
He gives me strength to wear a smile!
