A song we are learning in our small singing group is called Thomas’ Song by Ken Young. The words are so meaningful that I wanted to share them. So, below are the words and there is also a link to an mp3 you can listen to. It is not a professionally recorded mp3 but you will still get the gist of the song.
This song could be “Dennis’ Song” or “____________ Song” with your name in the blank.
Here are the Lyrics:
Jesus, You were all to me,
Why did You die on Calvary?
O Lamb of God I fail to see
How this could be part of the plan.
They say that You’re alive again,
But I saw death and ev’ry sin
Reach out to claim their darkest win.
How could this be part of the plan?
If I could only hold your hand,
And touch the scars
Where nails were driven.
I would need to feel Your side
Where holy flesh by spear was riven
Then I’d believe, only then I’d believe
Your cruel death was part of the heavenly plan.
Holy presence, holy face;
A vision filling time and space.
Your nearness makes my spirit race.
Could this be part of the plan.
I see the wounds that caused the cry,
From heaven, ocean, earth, and sky;
Where people watched their Savior die.
Could this be part of the plan?
Reaching out to hold Your hand,
And touch the scars where nails were driven;
Coming near I feel Your side
Where holy flesh by spear was riven.
Now I believe. Jesus, now I believe.
Your cruel death was part of a heavenly plan.
I proudly say with blazon cry.
"You are my Lord and my God."
