Good News

The good news,
Is that there
Is a good news tale to tell.
The bad news,
Is that we haven’t been
Telling good news very well.
The good news,
Is even when you’ve got
Trouble in the valley below,
The good news can come to you
But you’ve got to listen way down low.

Chorus:
The good news rides through,
Like a cavalry from Calvary.
The good news rings true,
And it’s ringing right here inside of me.
The good news can find you,
But you’ve got to be
Where you can see,
It’s the Christ in you.

The good news,
Is that there
Is a God who loves everyone.
The good news,
Is He loved us so well
He gave His only son.
The bad news,
Is that He died on a cross,
Then He laid in a cave.
But good news came shining through,
When they rolled back the rock on an empty grave.

repeat chorus

I’m like you.
Living here in a faithless
World full of sin.
I’m like you.
I haven’t found very much
Worth believing in.
I’m like you.
I’m just trying to make sense
Of the things that I see.
And like you, I could use some good news
When nothing but bad news is following me.

repeat chorus

And that’s good news.
And that’s good news.
