John 3:16-17

16“For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life. 17 “Indeed, God did not send the Son into the world to condemn the world but in order that the world might be saved through him.

Music & Message: The Gospel According to Johnny Cash, Part II

Gospel Road

Matthew, Mark and Luke and John
Told about Jesus on that gospel highway
Matthew, Mark and Luke and John
Told about Jesus on that gospel road
How his pillow was a stone where he laid his head
How the hungry five thousand on the hill were fed
How the people came and listened to him ev'rything he said
Walkin' down that gospel road
The desire of ages now had finally come
Born to walk upon that Gospel Highway
Born of a virgin down in Bethlehem
Born to walk upon that Gospel Road
And life would begin at the touch of his hand
The people would listen to him throughout the land
For never a man spoke like this man
Walkin' down that Gospel Road

He turned the Water into Wine

He turned the water into wine he turned the water into wine
In the little Canaan town the word went all around that
He turned the water into wine
Well he walked upon the Sea of Galilee
He walked upon the Sea of Galilee
Shouted far and wide he calmed the raging tide and
Walked upon the Sea of Galilee
He turned the water into wine he did my lord now
He turned the water into wine
In the little Canaan town, the word went all around that
He turned the water into wine
He fed the hungry multitude (didn't he brother)
He fed the hungry multitude
With a little bit of fish and bread
They said every one was fed (5000)
He fed the hungry multitude
He turned the water into wine
(Didn't a carpenter from Nazareth)
He turned the water into wine
In the little Canaan town, the word went all around that
He turned the water into wine
He turned the water into wine

Jesus Was a Carpenter

Jesus was a carpenter and he worked with a saw and a hammer
And His hands could join a table true enough to stand forever
And He might have spun His life out in the coolness of the morning
But He put aside His tools and He walked the burning highways
To build a house from folks like you and me

And He found them as they wandered through the wild Judean mountains
And He found them as they pulled their nets upon the Sea of Galilee
And for a thousand evenings while the day behind Him emptied
He walked among the poor, and he stopped to touch the dying
And He built His house from people just like these

It was on a shining Sunday when He rode to old Jerusalem
And the palms they cast before him were the crimes they laid against Him
It was on a storming Friday when He climbed the streets to Calvary
And where He died today why they're selling beads and postcards
And they tell us too that that was long ago

But would He stand today upon the sands of California
And walk the sweating blacktop in New York and Mississippi?
Where the mighty churches rise above the screaming cities
Would He be a guest on Sunday, a vagrant on a Monday?
With the doors locked tight against his kind you know

Come again now Jesus be a carpenter among us
There are chapels in our discontent, cathedrals in our sorrows
And we dwell in golden mansions with the sand for our foundations
And the raging water's rising and the thunder's all around us
Won't you come and build a house on rock again

Jesus was a carpenter and he worked with a saw and a hammer
And his hands could form a table true enough to stand forever
And he might have spun his life out in the coolness of the mornings
But He put aside His tools and He walked the burning highways
To build a house from folks like you and me
