HE THOUGHT YOU WERE WORTH IT (poetry)

February 5, 2021

 Slowly, with purpose
 He walked through the streets
 Each step He was taking
 Your life He could see
 

 Breathing in pain
 Sores on His back
 He suffered the shame
 But His heart was intact
 

 He knew that His mission
 It must be fulfilled
 There was no other way
 Except Calvary’s hill
 

 Looking at faces
 His mind must have swirled
 He kept the joy before Him
 Of saving the world
 

 Strong and determined
 As His life blood poured out
 He knew it was worth it
 He ignored hell’s loud shout
 

 As He hung on the cross
 He gave out a cry
 As He paid for our sins
 Tears streamed from His eyes
 

 Love kept Him there
 We’ll never know
 How bad was His suffering
 The three days He was gone
 

 Paying our penalty
 As He hung on the cross
 He knew what it took
 To redeem all the lost
 

 So now it’s our choice
 To believe and receive
 The beautiful gift
 For which He did bleed
 

 So never doubt
 That He loves you so
 How willingly He gave
 To make you His own
