God Is Holy

This is set to the tune of “Jesus Loves Me.”

God is holy, this I know
For the Bible tells me so
Sin can’t stand in front of Him
So our prospect’s very dim

All have sinned, from young to old
None should tread the streets of gold
We deserve eternal fire
We are truly in the mire

Yes He is holy
Yes He is holy
Yes He is Holy
The Bible tells me so

My Lord Jesus died for me
Hanging from a rough hewn tree
He did this to set me free
Satan’s lost his grip on me

“It is finished!” One final cry
And on that cross my Savior died
Then his blood ran to the ground
And his heart did cease to pound

Easter morn came sure and fast
Death for him just couldn’t last
No longer did the tomb imprison
Then came the news, ” He is risen!”

Now before God we may stand
Soon forever in His land
Covered in the Lamb’s pure blood
Now all God sees is His son.

And so this song must end dear friends
And your time here He does lend
Tho’ Heav’n comes to us swift and sweet
For now we are His hands and feet

God hates our sinning
Yet he truly loves us
Listen to the proof now
Just look to Calvary
