"There Was No Other Way"

I cannot find this song by John Peterson in any of my songbooks. I know we have sung it before as a special. Does anyone have the lyrics and the book it is found in? Thanks. "There Was No Other Way"

Possibly this one??


Some people will tell you when this life is through
There's no life hereafter whatever you do
But God has the answer beyond the dark grave
Through Jesus at Calvary, there's no other way.


There's no other Savior but Jesus the Lord
No plan of salvation but God's Holy Word
There's no other power sufficient to save,
Just Jesus at Calvary, there's no other way.

God's love is a treasure that money can't buy
The promise of heaven at home in the sky
That price of redemption is already paid
Through Jesus at Calvary, there's no other way.

"There Was No Other Way"

Here it is, sallysue: There Was No Other Way by John W. Peterson
It is in Vol.2 of "Beyond the Blue" which is a Singspiration song book. My copy was published in 1969, so it may be hard to find. If you will tell me how to send you the music, I'll be glad to do it. It's written in the Key of C, so if you know the tune, it should be easy to play.
Before the stars were hung or planets fashioned,
Before the clay was formed to make a man,
Christ was the Lamb of God for sinners offered --
This was redemption's one and only plan.
The wealth of all the world could not redeem us,
Nor could our feeble works -- so great the price!
Our only hope is in the blood of Jesus --
The blood He shed for us in sacrifice.
So, friend, if you would find the way to heaven,
If fromthe guilt of sin you would be free,
Accept the only way by God provided --
The great redeeming work at Calvary.
O I must tell the news where'er He leads me,
Proclaim the gospel sound both far and near;
The way, the truth, the life is found in Jesus --
This is the message all the world must hear.

There was no other way a God of love could find
To reconcile the world and save a lost mankind;
It took the death of His own Son upon tree --
There was no other way but calvary.

I was meditating on Matt 26, Jesus praying in the garden and the words of this song popped into my head! Thanks for filling in the blanks! I have quite a few old hymn and sing books and have been thinking about the power and beauty of some of these old songs! God bless! Hilary
