A Salvation Story (Part III & IV)

God, who is love, looked upon me with compassion;
With His loving-kindness, He heard my petition,
For He longed to pick me from my depravation;
From slav’ry, He desired to give me salvation!

And the Lord said, “From your sins, I’ll deliver you;
From all your unrighteousness, you will I rescue,
And I will replace your death with life that is true;
Your being and nature, all of them I’ll renew! ”

And from His Deity, Himself He had emptied
That from all my ungodliness, I might be freed;
To make Himself a sin for me, the Lord He did
That all my iniquities might be paid!

In a garden, the Son knelt in great misery,
In Gethsemane, He was pressed with agony;
Being so distressed, all His sweat became bloody,
And with great sorrow, He was crushed so severely!

And all of my sins and the world’s on Him were laid,
For all of us, a sin the Son of God was made;
That the Father may judge Him and our debts be paid
That His righteousness might be in us in a trade.

On the cross, the Son was forsaken and lonely
For the Father have turned from Him, being dirty
And He was left bearing Adam’s iniquity
So He cried, “My God, why have You forsaken me? ”

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
