The Way To God

by Paul Mayes Jamar

I see Jesus lower than Angels
coming in the form of men
to die, and on a cross to dangle,
for our regrets, failures, and sin.

On the third day rose God’s Son
conquering death, pain, and sorrow,
forever putting Satan on the run,
granting men hope of a new tomorrow.

With justice, and righteousness to all
from a Savior in the flesh, and frail,
Jesus gave up Heaven, and to Earth did call,
to save souls from eternal death, and hell.

He tasted death's shadow, and smother
to redeem mankind forever more,
giving salvation to believers and brothers,
rising three days after the Temple curtain tore.

Now with all authority and power,
sitting at God’s right hand above,
hearing our prayers, this strong tower
makes demons cower with God’s love.

The way to God is open just for today,
some come through to Jesus, Heaven’s door,
and live forever with the Lord His way,
no pain, no sorrow, no death, no more.
