Or needs to be explained in some Psalmís mystic verse,
Iím actually no different to any other loving Dad,
Who longs to build relationships with the children heís had.
And Iíve been watching their lives and seeing them strain,
As they have tried to struggle against lifeís heavy rain,
I realised there was only one thing left that I could do,
Iíd come to earth Myself. Iíd come. And die for you.
Iíll pay the price thatís due; that simply must be paid.
When the scales of justice rock, My innocence can be weighed.
Iíll wipe the slate clean, Iíll wash away each and every stain,
And Iíll give you a reason to sing, even in that heavy rain.
Iíll walk with you when caught in a cycle of being used,
Iíll cry with you when you feel youíre being attacked or abused.
When chemical addictions are rife, with talons sharp and deep,
Youíll find a pathway out, marked by the tears that I weep.
And thatís exactly what He did, leaving His heavenly place,
He made a move to win me, to bring me into heavenly grace.
He stretched His arms wide open. He said, ďIíll die for you.Ē
And now I am left with a question, ďIn return, what can I do?Ē
The answer came one night, as I pondered His precious gift,
Looking back over the rain and pain of my lifeís massive rift,
And I realised in loving gratitude, I knew exactly what to do,
Iíll stretch my arms wide in sacrifice; ďJesus, I too, will die for You.Ē
