Jesus is the good news.

Three, Two, One, the story has begun.
Two is better than One, and a Three-fold cord twist together, is power.
Three men were sentenced to death, Two thieves deserving their pay,
but One, a king they only wished away.
Betrayed by a kiss of a friend and for 30 pieces of silver,
justice was marred on that ancient day.
Three men would die a horrible death, Two for a life of crime,
but One, for humankind.
Three bodies bruised and broken, Two were caught, guilty as hell,
but One, innocent like a lamb,
Three souls departed that afternoon, Two destined for paradise,
but One slipped and fell to Hades down below.
Three men were laid to rest, Two from dust to dust,
but One from dusk to dawn, would rise again.
Three days later, Two graves still sealed and silent,
but One tombstone rolled away.
And when Jesus walked out alive, death and hell were defeated,
triumphant he was for everyone.
An empty grave and angels choir.
The good news of the gospel has eternal power.
God so loved the world, he gave his only begotten son,
whosoever believes in him, will never perish, but also live forever.
