Audio: Salvation Rap (Based on John 1:1, 11–12, and 14; Revelation 3:20; John 3:16; Ephesians 2:8–9; Romans 6:23.)

In the beginning was the Word, was the Word,
And the Word was with God and the Word was God.
And the Word was made flesh and lived among us.
He came unto His own and His own received Him not.

(Chorus)

But as many as received, as received, as received Him
To them gave He power to become the sons of God,
Even to them that believe on His name,
To them gave He power to become the sons of God.

He is standing at the door of your heart, of your heart now,
Knocking, waiting for you to let Him in.
You see that all you’ve got to do is open up your heart now
And just ask Him, receive Him, ask Jesus to come in.

Amazing grace, how sweet…

(Chorus)

You see, we’ve all been sinners, we’ve all made mistakes,
And that’s why God sent His Son, that through His death we might be saved.
Because God loved everyone in the world so much He gave,
His one and only Son so that through faith in Him we could be saved.

Amazing grace, how sweet…

(Chorus)

Amazing grace, how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me.

You can’t work for it, work for it, because it is a gift.
He won’t take it back from you, because it is a gift.
You can’t work for it, pay for it, earn it; it’s a gift.
You can’t be good enough nor too bad, can’t deserve it; it’s a gift.
Amazing grace, how sweet…

(Chorus)

For by grace are you saved through faith, not of yourselves.
It is a gift of God and not of works, not of yourselves.
For the wages of sin is death, not of yourselves.
But the gift of God is eternal, eternal, eternal, eternal life.
But the gift of God is eternal, eternal, eternal life through Jesus Christ.
Eternal life, eternal life.

(Chorus)

Just pray this prayer and repeat after me and say, “Jesus, come into my heart!

Forgive all my sins, give me eternal life; I believe You are the Son of God.”

(Chorus)

Amazing grace, how sweet the sound, that saved a wretch like me.
