"THAT'S WHY JESUS"

Verse 1
God, up in Heaven, looked down one day
And saw all the people had gone astray.
Fighting with each other,
Not loving one another,
He couldn't let them go on this way.
So God's Son, Jesus, said, "Father, I see
The people on the Earth need help from Me.
I'll go and show Your love to them
And to talk about Your City in Heaven."

Verse 2
So dear Jesus came down to Earth.
Angels sang to proclaim His birth.
He went everywhere
Teaching people how to share,
Showed them all what love was worth.
He gives me love that will never end.
I just want to thank Him for everything,
And making me all happy again,
'Cause Jesus is my very best Friend.

Chorus 1
That's why Jesus [that's why Jesus],
I say, that's why Jesus [that's why Jesus],
I say, that's why Jesus is my very best Friend.

Repeat Chorus

Bridge
But there were bad men full of hate & pride,
They took Him away to be crucified,
But on that day He was heard to say,
"Oh, Father, please forgive them I pray."
And…

Repeat Chorus twice
