For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him, will not perish, but have eternal life.  John 3:16

You’ve heard the Bible stories, since you were but a child

of lions, whales, and boats so large it made your mind run wild;

but, stories and nursery rhymes of things so long ago,

can seem impossible to trust when you’re tossed to and fro.

But Storybook Jesus lives, and He wants you all to know,

when you call His name, He’ll be right there,

through your storm…where ‘ere you go.

Daniel in the lions den, and a giant brought so low,

can seem so unbelievable, as Bible stories go.

Sampson, and his enemies, and Jericho’s great walls,

can sometimes cause your heart to fail,

and countenance to fall.

These doubts will keep you from your peace,

but know this all in all, Storybook Jesus will not fail

to be there when you call!

Storybook Jesus, my heart calls out to you…

You’re not just a fable…I know you to be true;

you’re not just a story, for you live here in my heart,

you walk beside me day by day,

in me, your love impart.

The biggest miracle of all…

is that you loved someone like me!

The greatest story ever told:

YOU died to set me free!
