4. A Message Came From Heaven

1
A message came from heaven
 
To cheer my heart one day;
 
It set the joy-bells ringing,
 
And chased my gloom away.
 
'Twas in the holy Bible,
 
John's Gospel, chapter three,
 
Verse sixteen I discovered
 
Was written there for me.
 
That means me, that means me,
 
"Whosoever will believe," and that means me.
 
I am so very glad because the Saviour said,
 
"Whosoever will believe," and that means me.
2
I read the wondrous story
 
How God in heaven high
 
So loved a world of sinners,
 
He sent His Son to die;
 
And that word "Whosoever,"
 
Believing I could see,
 
Though meant for everybody,
 
Was mostly meant for me.
