Week 74

The only thing we received from Elder Ashby was a Facebook post of a song that he and his companion wrote and put music to.  You can go listen to it by going to Elder Trent Ashby's Facebook link. 

Here are the words of the song.

Because of Him
He gave this life, He gave us His Son, He gave us this world for everyone
To be in it and to live in but to truly not be of it, 
and find that peace we need through the Holy One

Who is He that walked on water, And Who is He that healed the sick
Gave the blind their sight, told the dumb to talk, gave strength to the lame so that they could walk
Brought the dead back to life, showed us He's the one,
who would lead us back to heaven when all is done.

In a Garden one night He plead with The Father,
for another way to save His sons and daughters.
But He said Thy Will be done, 
so the Atonement had begun
He bled from every pore, pain took Him to the floor
overcame the world opened salvations door

Betrayed by His friend, Mocked by Pharisee men
Taken then to Pilate, He said, answering him
My Kingdom is not of this world, To this end was I born, 
and for this cause came I into the world

He is Jesus, King of Kings
Lord of Lords and author of salvation

A crown of thorns laid on His head, a heavy cross and a mile he had
To where He was nailed on the cross and hung high on Calvary
There he suffered and died for you and me
Forgive them for they know not what they do
Father why hast thou forsaken me
into thy hands I commend my spirits

He Rose again
Now Death has no end
And resurrection is to all men
You and I, and our family
Because of Him we can be together for eternity.

He is Jesus, King of kings
Lord of Lords and author of Salvation., (X2)

Love you all,
Elder Ashby
