Song of Jesus
Drew D. Montgomery

Sing a song of Jesus, Teacher, Healer, Friend,
Sing a song of Jesus, stanzas without end,
From Bethleham to Calvary, the cradle to the grave,
Sing a song of Jesus, the only one who saves.

Chorus:
Sing a song, song of Jesus,
Sing it out let it ring,
Sing a song, song of Jesus,
Messiah, Savior, King.

Sing a song of Jesus, his glory, might and grace,
As he walked to Bethany, the tears that stained his face,
As he called the dead-man forth, all wrapped up in a shroud,
How the spark of life returned when the Master called aloud.

Chorus

Sing a song of Jesus, the Lion and the Lamb,
Sing of might and sacrifice throughout that barren land.
Sing of wounds on hands and feet, upon his head and side,
And how our blessed Savior, God, was so cruelly crucified.

Chorus

Sing about our Jesus, how they took him from that tree,
And placed him in that cold, dark tomb at the foot of Calvary.
The Romans and Sanhedrian sealed up that tomb so tight,
But there's nothing darkness ever does can prevail against Heaven's might.

Chorus

Sing about our Jesus that resurrection day,
The grave-clothes laying on the slab, the stone had rolled away.
The dead are dead no longer, captivity's been set free,
And now he's opened Heaven's gate, to let in you and me.

Chorus

Jesus, Lord, Messiah, Master, Savior, Friend.
Who taketh from a lost dead state, giveth life that'll never end.
Guide me down thy pathways, fill me with thy Holy Ghost,
And when I slip these earthly bonds, bring me into thy Heavenly Host..

Chorus
