(Chorus)
No news is good news when you’re reading your newspaper
No news is good news when you’re watching your TV
Oh, the only news worth hearing you can find right in the Bible
It’s the good news of the One who came and died for you and me

1. War is on the front page; the deaths are on the back page
There’s murder on the pages in between
There’s news of rising prices and mankind’s growing vices
And this old world is about as bad as I have ever seen

Repeat Chorus

2. If you’re tired of bad news that rests about the home scene
Let me remind you Jesus saves today
Your sins can be forgiven; He’ll set your mind on Heaven
And one day soon He’ll come to take His children home to stay

Repeat Chorus

Good news, good news, good news, good news
Good news of the One who came and died for you and me
You and me
