How Could You Say No

I’m not sure how Reformers feel about this song in light of irresistible grace — the “I” of TULIP — but it’s always been one of my favorite songs for this time of year. I posted a cover version of it here two years ago, but discovered this week that the original version, performed by Julie Miller, is now available online.

Thorns on his head spear in his side
Yet it was a heartache that made him cry
He gave his life so you would understand
Is there any way you could say no to this man?

If Christ himself were standing here
Face full of glory and eyes full of tears
And he held out his arms and his nail printed hands
Is there any way you could say no to this man?

How could you look in his tear stained eyes
knowing it’s you he’s thinking of?
Could you tell him you’re not ready to give him your life
Could you say you don’t think you need his love?

Jesus is here with his arms open wide
You can see him with your heart

If you’ll stop looking with your eyes
He’s left it up to you,
He’s done all that he can
Is there any way you could say no to this man?

How could you look in his tear stained eyes
Knowing it’s you he’s thinking of?
Could you tell him you’re not ready to give him your life?
Could you say you don’t think you need his love?

Thorns on his head, your life in on his hands
Is there any way you could say no to this man?
Is there any way you could say no to this man?
