John 3:16

Words and Music By Kevin Sackett

I was working at my desk one day and I started thinking about the Gospel message in the Bible and how simple it really is;  "For God so loved the world, that he gave his one and only Son, so that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life."  I picked up my guitar and wrote this song with words and music and less than 20 minutes.

You say there are no guarantees;   You play the cards you get,

You live like there’s no tomorrow,   And you say you don’t regret…

You only have one life to live,   At least that’s what you’ve heard,

If you think that’s true, if I were you,   I’d get into the Word…  (cause)


There’s a message waiting for you,

Now open up the bible, It’s easy to do…

Turn to John chapter three,    Take a look at verse sixteen,

Read about the gift waiting for you…


“For God so loved the World,   That He gave His one and Only Son,

That whoever believes in Him,  Shall not perish but have eternal life…”


You say that you’re a sinner,   And you’re not good enough,

And no one can imagine,   All the things you’ve done,

But our Lord he had the knowledge and the wisdom to see,

So He made a plan to save us all, if only we believe…

So He sent Jesus,   To die in your place,

He suffered on the cross,   So your sins would be erased,

Now turn to John, chapter 3, Take a look at verse 16,

and read about the gift waiting for you.

“For God so loved the World,   That He gave His one and Only Son,

That whoever believes in Him,  Shall not perish but have eternal life…”
