He Came for Us

    “He Came for Us,” Friend, Apr. 2011, 10

    He Came for Us

    With devotion 72–80

    music, He Came for Us

    When Jesus Christ was on the earth

    so many years ago,

    He taught our Heav’nly Father’s plan

    For children here below.

    Through parables, with simple words,

    He said, “Come, follow me,”

    That we might now have joy on earth

    And live eternally.

    That Easter morn, disciples ran

    to see where Jesus lay;

    And there they saw a miracle:

    The stone was rolled away!


    He came for us; He died for us—

    All to fulfill our Father’s plan.

    On Calvary, Gethsemane,

    He sacrificed that we might live again.
