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:

 

Thomas’ Song

Ken Young

Verse 1
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?

Chorus 1
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.

Verse 2
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?

Chorus 2
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.

Ending
I proudly say with blazon cry.
"You are my Lord and my God."
