Someday I shall be like Him

My Savior from above.

The One who died to save me

More like Him in His love.



It was His love that made Him go

To that treacherous cross,

That cross reserved for wicked men

Our wickedness His loss!



If you cannot visualize the shame

Associated there

You need to now consider

Just what He had to bear!



Not just the anguish or the pain

But He, the sinless One,

Condemned to death as a criminal

God’s holy perfect Son!



But do not you know He had to die!

He had to go through hell!

To satisfy our perfect God

His love it was compelled—



“Would you be willing, Son of mine,

To go the sinners route?

To suffer, die, a sinners death

To bring new life about?”



Without a word, He nodded!

For this is why He came,

Became the human sacrifice

On Him all our sins lain!



Did ever such love and sorrow meet

Or thorns compose a crown,

A crown that could admit defeat

Our God must turn around!



He could not face the tragic scene

But, “God so loved the world

He gave His one begotten Son…”

The love of God unfurled!

  1. Hi there, I do think your website may be having internet browser compatibility issues. When I take a look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in I.E., it’s got some overlapping issues. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Besides that, fantastic website!
