Loving Jesus
Scourged and spat upon
Taking my sins upon you
Suffering for me
Even while I preferred to stay in darkness
You hung on the Cross for all mankind
Suffering the crushing weight of sin
While all continued to rebel against You
Not considering the enormity of sin
But You, condemned
By the wrath of the Father against sin
An evil scourge not removed
Except by the sacrifice only You could supply
And the Father, suffering immeasurably
Giving You, His only Son
To suffer such ignominy and pain, loss
The loss of the love of the Father
And a death You feared might be Your end
A grave You couldn’t see beyond

We kneel
Bowing our heads to You
The Lamb of God
Our Redeemer

    A price too high
    a debt great
    on sinful man could
    Who can pay such
    a debt?
    Only a sinless lamb
    the Son of God
    Yeshua Messiah.

      It makes me happy when a reader truly appreciates what I’ve written by leaving a wonderful comment, as you did. Thank you. We will be forever in awe of His sacrifice and praise and worship Jesus in the endless ages to come after He comes to take us home.
