We want to see Jesus lifted high

We want to see Jesus lifted high

[John 12:20-25]

Now there were certain Greeks among those that went up to worship at the feast. These, therefore, came to Philip, who was from Bethsaida of Galilee, and asked him, saying, “Sir, we want to see Jesus.” Philip came and told Andrew, and in turn, Andrew came with Philip, and they told Jesus.

Jesus answered them, “The time has come for the Son of Man to be glorified. Most certainly I tell you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains by itself alone. But if it dies, it bears much fruit.  He who loves his life will lose it. He who hates his life in this world will keep it to eternal life.  If anyone serves me, let him follow me. Where I am, there will my servant also be. If anyone serves me, the Father will honor him.”

We want to see Jesus lifted high,
A banner that flies across the land,
That all men might see the truth and know,
He is the way to heaven.

We want to see, we want to see, we want to see Jesus lifted high
We want to see, we want to see, we want to see Jesus lifted high
Step by step we’re moving forward,
Little by little taking ground,
Every prayer is a powerful weapon,
And down and down and down……
