But Jesus, what you’ve told us, it can’t be done.
No, no one is righteous, not even one.
What can we do to earn your reward?
What you require, its just too hard.
Who can fulfill your every command?
It can’t be accomplished by a mere mortal man!
Jesus replied: “you can’t. But I can.
I’ll open the door to the promised land.
I’ll live the life you cannot live.
I’ll give the death you cannot give.
I’ll conquer death. I’ll conquer sin.
So take my hand; I’ll let you in.”
