GREAT IS THE LORD

Great is The Lord!  Can any be greater?

Worthy of praise, cannot you see?

The rocks and trees would cry out to honor

If man will not stoop, bend the knee!

.

.

Maker of all space, the galaxies

Endless by Him contained!

Then made the man in His own image!

Beasts of the fields remain.

.

.

Man alone can boast everlasting!

Created to walk with God!

As Enoch who “walked with God, and was not,

“For God took him,” aloft!

.

.

Who else is perfect?  None of this earth.

Jesus, God’s Son, stands alone

Perfect Lamb of God, man’s sacrifice!

Who else could for sin atone?

.

.

At one with God, “Through the blood of the Lamb.”

As pictured in Old Testament days

That lamb representing the Lamb of God

Whose blood was spilt for our ways.

.

.

Our sinful ways, guilty!  Each one

Everyone sheer bound for hell!

Has Lucifer won?  No!  Jesus shed blood

Once applied can make all well!

.

.

Not an over simplification this!  For

“Without the shedding of blood

There is no remission for sin,” at all!

Give thanks for the crimson flood.

.

.

Truly flood it seemed for in days long past

Animals sacrificed.

Represented the sins of every nature all

Contained on that cross tree.

.

.

Contained at last blood of The Lamb!

The Lamb of God who took

Every sin making possible that

All we need do is look!

.

.

Look to The Lamb for cleansing from sin.

Appropriate!  This He has done!

Whatever fluid representing His blood

Completed for everyone!

.

.

This is the blood of Christ, God’s Son,

To cleanse from unrighteousness

And fit us for heaven!  All who partake!

As we, our sins, confess!

.

.

“If we confess our sins, He is faithful

And just to forgive and cleanse…”

And “the blood of Jesus Christ, God’s

Son, cleanses us from all unrighteousness.”

INCOMPARABLE LOVE

Love of God, how can this be?

Sinner saved from sin!  Set free?

Some still remains, the stain, the guilt.

May always be!  The sand, the silt!

.

.

Prayer Christ taught, “Forgive today!

Trespasses that lead astray!”

He knows our weakness frame of mind.

One sinless person, hard to find!

.

.

Enoch walked with God, “And was not!”

God took him!  Heaven was his lot!

Another prince, Moses, who died,

Remains not found on that mountainside.

.

.

Laid claim and nothing there revealed,

The book was closed and remains concealed!

Those two who left God closed the door,

Just two who left!  We know no more!

.

.

His love still reaches down to me!

A sinner saved by grace, set free!

Unlike Moses, I will have to stay!

Until that everlasting day!

.

.

Sinless I am not!  I have my faults!

Like, too much food, I love malts!

Despicable!  This tendency!

Someday I will be forever free!

.

.

Glorified body will it require

Food to subsist?  An earnest desire

To know but I am content

To wait to discover true Heaven-sent.

.

.

Faults are sins and my sins are faults!

And much more than my love for malts!

Then someday must I answer for

Precious Blood of Jesus, I adore!

.

.

The blood that washes out my sin,

I plead the blood!  The plea within

My heart cries out, “Remember Me!”

Lost soul in heaven, found and free!

.
