- Did you ever think?


Did you ever think what this world would be
   If Christ hadn't come to save it?
His hands and feet were nailed to the tree,
   And His precious life – He gave it.
But countless hearts would break with grief,
   At the hopeless life they were given,
If God had not sent the world relief,
   If Jesus had stayed in Heaven.

Did you ever think what this world would be
   With never a life hereafter?
Despair in the faces of all we'd see,
   And sobbing instead of laugher.
In vain is beauty, and flowers' bloom,
   To remove the heart's dejection,
Since all would drift to a yawning tomb,
   With never a resurrection.

Did you ever think what this world would be
   How weary of all endeavor,
If the dead unnumbered, in land and sea,
   Would just sleep on forever?
Only a pall over hill and plain!
   And the brightest hours are dreary,
Where the heart is sad, and hopes are vain,
   And life is sad and weary.

Did you ever think what this world would be
   If Christ had stayed in heaven, –
No home in bliss, no soul set free,
   No life, or sins forgiven?
But he came with a heart of tenderest love,
   And now from on high he sees us,
Thank God for the gift of Jesus!
