Just when the sin seems too great for Grace,
When I tremble fearful to see His face,
When denial, betrayal stare me down,
He lifts me then! No trace of a frown!
Love greets prodigal with a smile!
Joyful forgiveness to last awhile!
Even until that Judgment Day!
I tearful, look down but hear Him say;
“Enter these gates, My joy I bestow!”
Tearful I stare at the gold below!
Unclean, not worthy! I fall to see
Black nail scares, Yes! He bore for me!
My sin! My shame He took it all!
Look up, I see pity, love with all
Contaminate, where ever I went,
Savior I see! The Heaven sent!
Reaching down I touch those ugly scars,
But lift them I see, the planets, the stars!
Creator of all! Yet full of Grace!
It is all right there in His loving face!
But then I see that rough cross from afar!
Flattened, I shudder, a jolt! Ajar!
This beautiful God! Wonderful Friend!
Will really be with me always! No End!
