A New Testament Gospera – The Greatest Story (feat. Chiquita "Redd" Downing) lyrics
[Intro]
Listen to a divine story...
Of a man who's now in glory.
Told about the one and only, Jesus.

[Verse 1]
Born alone in some poor manger...
The wicked king rose up in anger.
He murdered all the newborns...
Trying to kill Jesus.

Often danger was abiding;
Had to keep the child in hiding.
Came to the world a fugitive...
The baby Jesus.

[Bridge 1]
Not one innkeeper had room for him;
Swaddling clothes would adorn him.
Wrapped in rags but, he never said one word.
Not one word! Not a single word!

[Verse 2]
He would help the poor and lonely.
And for that the world would only...
Despise the name and threaten the life of...
Jesus.

He healed the sick... made blind eyes see.
He told the truth to make all men free.
And just for that they hated the man...
The human Jesus.

[Bridge 2]
Some threw rocks while others scorned him.
In the end, not one would join him.
Rejected by most, but he never said one word!
Not one word! Not a single word!

[Verse 3]
They sent a mob at night to protest him;
Carefully planned their job to arrest him.
Marked by a kiss, he did not resist,
Then they took away Jesus.

He stood before the wicked Sanhedrin;
He always knew that they'd never free him.
Falsely accused, then sentenced to death...
The innocent Jesus.

[Chorus 1]
They beat him and they marred him!
He did fall down and then they scared him!
And then they laughed but he never said one word!

[Chorus 2]
They placed a crown of thorns upon his brow
And then they whipped him all around that night...
But he never said one word!

[Chorus 3]
They locked him up and then they took his robe
To let him suffer in the cold 'til the next morn...
But he never said one word!

[Chorus 4]
They put a heavy cross upon his back
And made him carry it to Calvary...
But he never said one word!

[Chorus 5]
They nailed the spikes in both hands and his feet
And then they raised him up for all to see...
But he never said one word...
Not one word! Not a single word!

[Hook]
Not one word!
- Amazing grace, how sweet the sound...
Not a single word!
- that saved a filthy wretch like me.
Not one word!
- I was lost but now I'm found.
Not a single word!
- I was blind but now I see.

[Repeat Hook]
Not one word!
- Amazing grace, how sweet the sound...
Not a single word!
- that saved a filthy wretch like me.
Not one word!
- I was lost but now I'm found.
Not a single word!
- I was blind but now I see.

Not one word! ...
