Thanks to Martha for sharing this song with us!
"Did you see that commercial for Coca-Cola back in the 70's? There were lots and lots of people singing the Coca-Cola song at night, while holding burning candles, and it goes like this..."
I'd like to teach the world to sing
in perfect harmony.
I'd like to buy the world a Coke
and keep it company.
New Seekers Coca-Cola 1971 Commercial
For the tune
"Well the song I'm talking about has that same tune. I'm not sure who came up with it first."
I'd like to teach the world a song
about the one I love.
Of Jesus Christ, the Son of God
who came down from above.
He gave me life, He set me free.
To Him I now belong.
All my sins are washed away.
That's why I sing this song.
He's the real thing,
Christ is in the back of your mind,
what you've been hoping to find.
He's the real thing.
Thanks to Caren for sending this version in!
I'd like to tell of Jesus Christ,
And how he came to save,
He took my sins upon himself,
And bore them to the grave,
He buried them beneath the earth,
And cast them in the sea,
And they will never rise again,
To trouble you and me.
(could add;) He's the real thing, Christ is
