Violent Grace

Violent Grace

Violent grace was payment made,
that day on Calvary.
Rusty spikes were driven deep -
God nailed to a tree.

Mercy merged with wickedness;
Father, His son forsook.
Pure and spotless Lamb was hung -
boldly flanked by thief and crook.

Violent grace was offered free
that day the curtain rent.
Sacred blood, the ground absorbed -
Earth?s rescue, Heaven sent.

Amazing Love so divine
did take my rightful place.
I?ll forever praise the Lord,
For this wondrous, violent grace.

~:~:~:~:~:~
God will provide a Lamb
To be offered up in your place
A sacrifice so spotless and clean
To take all your sin away
- Michael Card

I'm left, Nancy, with a catch in my breath ... the image so powerfully present. I'm especially moved by the lines: Violent grace was offered free that day the curtain rent. Sacred blood, the ground absorbed - Earth's rescue, Heaven sent. Thank you for making me pause, reflect once again on the magnitude of Christ's sacrifice on my account.

"Amazing Love so divine did take my rightful place." Yes, it was our place there, but I sure am glad He took it for me. I like this poem. Thomas, www.dustonthebible.com

Yippee! She's here sharing the gifts God has given her. On a more somber note - thank you for taking us to the Cross of Christ. I love you, sis and I am so glad you are sharing with us!
