Jesus Built a Bridge hymn:

One day they nailed a carpenter to a rugged tree,
thinking he would never build again,
there they nailed him through his hands and feet,
still he carried out a master plan.

Chorus: Jesus built a bridge to heaven,
so that I could have a way up to Him,
Jesus built a bridge the only way he could;
With only three nails, and two pieces of wood,
With one rugged cross, Jesus built a bridge.

The Father looked from heaven to our world below,
and it seemed there was no way to claim His own.
So to the world his Son, the Master builder, had to go,
To make a way to bring God's children home.

Ken B, that's exactly the way I remember hearing it sung by the "Valley of Decision" youth choir a number of years ago. Hearing teenagers and, yes, an adult or two, singing a song of praise like this one, was priceless.
