TITLE: The Cup of Salvation

Wondrous fellowship of mystery
Wrought, before the world began
God in goodness, love and mercy
Made a way for fallen man

Bitter gall of human misery
Bonds of dark iniquity
Who could drink this cup of sorrow?
One said, 'Here am I, send me'

Vessel, brimmed with condemnation
Baneful, loathsome, brew of sin
All the righteous indignation,
Of God's wrath, contained therein

Prostrate, laying in the garden,
Blood-drops fell, in agony
As the Saviour prayed in anguish
'Father, take this cup from me'

On the cross, my Lord and maker
Tasted death for every man,
Drained the awful dregs of suffering
Perfecting redemption's plan

Cup of fury, cup of trembling
Poison chalice, draught for me,
But one look to Christ on Calvary
Fetters fall and I am free!

Now the cup is one of union,
Peace and pardon, which we bless,
Taste and see, this sweet communion
Jesus' blood and righteousness


Hallelujah, what a Saviour!

This was absolutely beautiful! The words spoken were of such conviction and blessed my heart. The rhythm seemed very good and I would certainly place this in top contention. Truly a blessing!

This is really lovely. It flows beautifully and the rhymes are nice. There have been quite a few stories about Jesus' cup this week, as it would be one of the first things many Christians would think of. I did enjoy it though. I'm not very musical but I think this would work well as a song. Nice job.

Thank you for your kind words and encouragement. Humbled. To God be the glory, great things He hath done, so loved He the world that He gave us His Son.
