As a young child, my mother used to play this song quite often. Although, at the time, I didnt understand the true meaning behind it, I liked it. This song has stayed in my memory all of these years. As an adult, I fully understand its meaning now. We ARE the reason that Jesus went to the cross and died. No matter how many gifts that we may receive in this life, nothing can possibly come close to the gift of love given to us by our Lord Jesus Christ.
John 15:13 – “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.”
