The World Needs Jesus
The world needs Jesus but why should I tell you,
You're busy with no time to spare.
They're dying without him
Who's known by just a few,
How long then this thought can you bare?
Jesus who died for you and me on the cross,
He died for your neighbor too.
How can you live without a burden for the lost?
May God have mercy on you.
Millions are dying towards God to heed their call,
Hoping their lives will be spared,
Who then woulud dare to redeem their precious soul
If only someone like you would care.
