Amazing Love

There are hideous crimes committed,
Every hour of every day,
Things we'd rather not hear about
But the newsman has his way.

Sometimes we feel we can't bear it
And it always seems much worse,
When the victim was an innocent ~
Or God's name was used in the curse.

There was One Who bled so freely,
One Whose heart was pure and good~
One who lived a life of purity like
Each knows we never could.

This crime, so hideous to watch,
Was performed by sinful men ~
Still, no one had the power
To take His life from Him.

He laid it down of His own will,
Complying with the Father.
They knew the only hope for man
Was there in the gift He offered.

He would die ~ that we might live ~
He did it ~ still forgiving,
All mens many, many sins
He bore to pay for living.

So, we are gifted by His death,
The splendid Hope of Heaven;
Don't turn it down, the price was great
Amazing Love was given.

Amazing Love - How can it be, that you, my King would die for me? This wonderful poem makes me think of that song. Great job! In Christ's Love, Julia
