When you’re caught up in your troubles
And there seems nowhere to turn,
Just remember Jesus loves you
And for your salvation yearns.
This is why He went to Calvary —
Taunted by the savage crew —
And so willingly had yielded
To be crucified for you.
There they nailed Him so securely
To the cross which bore His weight,
And from which He writhed in torment,
Just to change the sinner’s fate.
But in order for this blessing
Of salvation to be yours,
You must hearken to the Savior
By obeying through His word.
For it’s not in mere “faith only”
That will turn your life around,
But in meeting His conditions
That will make you heaven bound.
So no matter what your problem
Or the sin that made you fall,
Come and listen to the Savior
For on the cross He died for all.
