This is an amazing poem.
The author states his purpose in the opening stanza:
When I first heard the gospel news,
It was revealed to me,
Why Jesus Christ came to this earth,
To die to set us free.
I’d like to share this news with you,
Why the Lord Jesus came,
So you can have this free gift too,
When you call upon his name.
For those of you who don’t know the story of Jesus Christ and what He did for you and me, this poem will lead you in the right direction.
