Knowing that you were ransomed from the futile ways inherited from your forefathers, not with perishable things such as silver or gold, but with the precious blood of Christ, like that of a lamb without blemish or spot. 1 Peter 1:18-19
You are so valuable to Jesus–
More than silver or gold!
He wants to make you His precious child
–A plan from long, long ago!
Your Father God sent Jesus
To buy your freedom from sin.
God paid so much for you to be free!
Only Jesus could make you clean.
No dollars could pay for your freedom—
No silver or precious stones!
No gold could buy what you needed,
God wanted to make you his own!
God could have kept Jesus in Heaven
And turned His back on you,
But He decided to give up His son
To buy you a life—brand new!
Only Jesus could give up His life
And God turned His Holy face,
Away from Jesus, and all your sin
And let Him take your place!
God will forever keep you
And make you a place to live,
With Him, in His home in Heaven.
But it cost Him all He could give!
