4. A Message Came From Heaven

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 Savior said,
"Whosoever will believe," and that means me.
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.
