He Went the Distance
Out of eternity,
He stepped into time.
The Author of creativity—
Shepherded in a new paradigm.
From glory to bridge the gap,
He descended the depth,
To free us from sin’s death trap,
Revive our soul to eternal health.
He graced the virgin’s womb,
Dignifying, in love, lowly humanity,
To deliver us from certain doom,
Steer us back to sacred sanity.
Birthed to be belittled, betrayed,
Beaten, and crucified in our stead.
Our debt, with His blood, He paid.
He hung on the cross ‘til declared dead.
On our behalf, buried for three days,
Yet, triumphantly, He rose from the grave.
Let us render unto Jesus glorious praise.
For us, He went the distance to save.
We fail short when His will we forsook.
For love, to save us, He did what it took.
And the Lord said, I have surely seen the affliction of My people…and have heard their cry by reason of their taskmasters; for I know their sorrows; and I am come down to deliver them… Exodus 3:7-8a
I Owe Jesus
