The Truth from Above

This is the truth sent from above

The truth of God the God of love

Therefore donít turn me from your door

But hearken well both rich and poor


The first thing which I do relate

Is that God did man create

The next thing which to you I'll tell

Woman was made with man to dwell


Thus we were heirs to endless woes

Till God the Lord did interpose

And so a promise soon did run

That He would redeem us by His Son


And at that season of the year

Our blest Redeemer did appear

He here did live and here did preach

And many thousand He did teach


Thus He in love to us behaved

To show us how we must be saved

And if you want to know the way

Be pleased to hear what he did say

The Truth From Above
