The Biggest Word

There are strong words like pow'r and hate

And peace and unity.

But none carries so large a weight

As the simplest of them; "Yes."

A young man knelt down on one knee

And gave his girl a ring.

He asked her, "Will you marry me?"

She changed his life with "Yes."

Mary was sitting all alone

When Gabriel appeared.

His question: "Will you bear God's son?"

Afraid, she answered, "Yes."

Our Lord was shown by His Father,

A vision of my sins.

God asked Him, "Will you die for her?"

He saved my soul with "Yes."
