A Salvation Story (Part V & VI)


V.
Because of all my transgressions, He was wounded
He was flogged for all of the crimes I’ve committed
For all my sins, with suff’ring, He was afflicted
And for my iniquities, to death He had bled.

So all my impurities He bore at the cross
And my sickness was carried away with His loss;
With His fall, my sinfulness was brought to a toss
And with His death ended all my shame so gross.

Now with His death, I’m dead with my unrighteousness
And with the Lord died all of my uncleanliness;
With His burial, I’m buried with Adam’s curses
And in His tomb was stored all of my trespasses!

VI.
But from rest rose up the Almighty Creator
And over the Hades, He was the Conqueror;
From the dead has risen the God-Man our Savior
And over our falling short He was the Victor!

He’s risen that from my death I’ll be delivered
He’s resurrected that my sin might be conquered
To bring me back to pasture came back my Shepherd
And to set me free rose up the Savior my Lord!

Now forever has risen the Almighty King
That He may give me hope that is ever living;
Eternally lives the Maker of ev’rything
That He may give me life everlasting!

Poem of the Day

poet John Gay

Friendship, as love, is but a name,
Save in a concentrated flame;
And thus, in friendships, who depend
On more than one, find not one friend.

A hare who, in a civil way,
