My Friend the Carpenter


Have you ever met my friend the carpenter?  He has great strength and power like no other.

You’d love my friend.  All you have to do is meet him.  He’ll wash away your sins  and give you true freedom.

Wounded for our transgressions,  bruised for our iniquities, I would be going to Hell If he had not saved me.

He took my hand  and showed me the way then turned all my midnights into days.

You should meet my friend. He’s really nice. He’ll never fail you, just give him a try.

I tell you the truth. He’ll change your life.  He’ll save you from burning, weeping, and strife.

Don’t be surprised when he gives you joy. Don’t be surprised when he gives you eternal life.

Don’t be afraid when you see his glorious might because my friend the carpenter is Jesus Christ.
