Text for children’s anthem

Jesus showed us God’s love in the garden when He prayed for us

Jesus showed us God’s love when He carried that awful cross.

Refrain: Tell me could you say what Jesus said if they did those mean things to you?  He said, “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.”

Jesus showed us God’s love when He let them nail him to the cross.

Jesus showed us God’s love when He died for us.  Refrain. 

Jesus showed us God’s love when He rose up from the dead. 

Jesus showed us God’s love when you hear the words He said. 

“My children, go into the world and show them my love and share the Gospel as you do, and I will always be right there with you. “

Now we’ll go into the world and show them his love and share the Gospel as we do, and He will always be right there with you.  Yes, he will always be right there with you

 Good Shepherd - Mafa

“Jesus said, "I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.. And I lay down my life for the sheep. I have other sheep that do not belong to this fold. I must bring them also, and they will listen to my voice. So there will be one flock, one shepherd. – John 10:11,16
