"LOVE CONSTRAINETH ME"

Verse 1
Many folks I meet, they ask me,
"Won't you please, please tell me why
What could make you give your time and life
Reaching out to those who cry?"

I just smile and answer,
"In my heart's a passion and a call;
The reason that every man or woman
Ever to others gave their all.

Chorus 1
He gave His life for me,
Woh, oh, oh, oh, oh. Well, can't you see?
How could it ever be a sacrifice,
When the love of Christ constraineth me!"
--Yeah, yeah-

Verse 2
People say, "You're so young and small;
What about your future and freedom?"
I say, "How can I sit back and do less
Than win others for His Heavenly Kingdom?

This is my motivation:
'Greater love hath no man for his friend;'
Like the martyrs and missionaries,
Who gave their lives for the brethren.

Chorus 2
He gave His life for me,
Woh, oh, oh, oh, oh. Well, can't you see?
How could it ever be a sacrifice,
For the love of Christ constraineth me!

Bridge
This is the answer that's cried out
From the heart of every true Christian
A cause for which they were willing to die,
In every good deed, this was their mission!

Solos: ---

Chorus 3
He gave His life for me,
Woh, oh, oh, oh, oh. Well, can't you see?
My service could not be a sacrifice,
Yes, it's worth the price.
For the love of Christ constraineth me!"
-Ah ah-
