I am accepted in the beloved
I am justified in Jesusí blood
I am saved by Godsí Grace alone
through faith my sins have been atoned.
I have been granted access to approach His throne.
Though born an orphan I am now called His own.
Through many years I suffered lost,
confused, and crippled until the cross
of Christ made me see
that the cost for healing was paid for me.
Freedom is never free
there is always a price,
someone must suffer in sacrifice.
There is no work I could have done or could do to earn this
my most treasured of gifts- Godís righteousness.
You're preaching here, brother! And it is good...proclaiming the righteousness of God. Simpler structure and plain language, very little imagery - because you are trying to communicate a very basic, needful fact as clearly as possible. Good proclamation poetry....
