SUFFERING SAVIOR

The suffering Savior died for me.

I gladly, humbly bow!

Experiencing just partially

Some of that suffering now!

.

.

He came for sinners, why He died

Was for your sins and mine.

His sacrifice on Calvary

Contained in the Divine!

.

.

Deity!  Devine He was

And is forevermore!

He died just for your sins and mine,

Small wonder we adore!

.

.

I cannot help but worship Him

I cannot this deny!

For me He suffered agony

And so He came to die!

.

.

He took our sins upon Himself

How can this not convey

A sacrifice extravagant

Your debt and mine to pay!

.

.

Does this not prove His love so deep

So fathomless beyond

All understanding we possess?

All thoughts we have confound?

.

.

No sense at all does it convey

Unless we look and see

His love extravagant and pure

Enough to die for me!

.
