Singing and composing hymns and other songs have been part of my life since my teenage days

Composer’s Foreword

I am not good in notes, but from the local church trainings while in choir, I have come around with this hymn using another hymn. If you know the hymn beneath, then you can join me to sing this song unto the Lord.

Come Thou Long-Expected Jesus - Red Mountain Music

The Composed Song

1. When Jesus was in the world

Even with his disciples

A young man came to him

To ask a question from him


2. And when he got to Jesus

He says that oh good master

What good thing can I even do

To inherit the eternal life


3. And Jesus answered him that

There is no one that is good

Even except one person

Yea the one is even God


4. But if thou wan’ to i’herit life

Thou should keep the commandment

As its written in book of law

And as thou hast ‘lso readeth


5. But the young man even asketh

From Jesus which one among them

Because he wants to enter life

The eternity after this world


6. Jesus answers do not steal

Murder not, bear not false witness

Thou shall not commit adultery

Honor thy father an’ mother


7. Jesus adds unto it that

Defraud ye not other persons

Love the Lord and even thy God

As thineself love thine neighbor


8. But he replies Jesus that

I have been keeping all these

Even from time of my youth

What lacketh I even yet?


9. Jesus beholds him and loved him

And says that if you ‘ll be perfect

Go and sell all that thou hast

And give all unto the poor


10. If thou canst do even this one

Thou ‘ll have treasure in heaven

Come, take up even thy cross

And you should be following me


11. But when the young man even heard

The answer Jesus gives him

Went he off sorrowfully

For he had great possessions


12. Jesus says after he left

Unto his disciples that

How hard is it for them that

Trust in riches to enter k’gdom of God


13. It’s easier ‘ven for a camel

To go through eye of needle

Than for those who ‘r even rich

To enter the kingdom of God


14. The disciples marvel at this

Exceedingly therefore they said

Who then can also be saved

Even in this world we live


15. Jesus also answers that

With men this be impossible

But it is not so with God

With God all things ‘re possible


16. To enter the glorious home

Lay up thy treasure in heaven

Even take up thy cross and

Follow Jesus the savior
