Treasure Island

Roy Allen


Today... 'Judge'


'He's not guilty so just take Him away'
They heard the voice of Pilate say that day
and led Him away to be crucified
to atone for my sins He bled and died.

'Although you are guilty you can go free'
I heard Jesus the Judge saying to me.
'For I died upon the cross in your stead'
and I'm Judge of the Living and the dead.

Now that the sinless Saviour had died
now by His mercy I'd been justified.
For Christ Who was the Judge could set me free
because Christ the Saviour had died for me.

The Bible calls You by many names
each one giving a glimpse of Your glory.
Like a cut diamond radiating in the sun
with every facet depicting a glorious
aspect of Your Divine Nature.
Today I have thought of You as
'Judge'

It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!
