Praise Freely Given

by Paul Mayes Jamar

Raise your voice to Jesus conquer over sin
Son of the Living God, born among men.

Who healed the poor and needy there
before us all His power, He did share.

The down-trodden, poor in spirit people
with all sorts of infirmities, diseases, and those feeble.

He still heals us today and will always save
our lost souls for on the cross His life He gave.

To make us acceptable to our holy God above
forgiving our sins by the sacrifice of Jesus, pure love.

For God so loved us all He gave His only Son
to die a horrible death, sacrificed to cleanse every one.

Who calls upon the name of Jesus to save them
believing Him Christ, worshiping with a hymn.

Come to Jesus today and praise you will freely give
to the name above all names that allow us to eternally live.
