When I think of all Jesus endured in the days before and on the cross to pay for the debt of my sin there are no words to describe my gratitude, for such an unspeakable gift of grace. The love of God for His creation is more than we can fully comprehend.
Loved by Every Drop of Blood
We were loved by every drop of blood shed upon the tree.
Loved by the Holy Sacrifice offered to set captives free.
Loved by every heartfelt pain
Jesus endured to break our every chain.
Every stripe upon His back; opened wide and raw,
Was to heal every lash, caused by evil since the fall.
The heavy weight of the curse of death was felt by God’s Son.
Every sin’s penalty was paid when His work was done.
In agony He felt the final separation.
His very essence of life was given to free the Nations,
“My God, why have you forsaken me,” in His last breaths
“Father forgive them” He cried, “It is finished”
Evil celebrated for they killed God’s Son,
But, for them it was not finished; God was not done.
His weeping followers would weep no more.
With great joy they were astonished at the sight of their risen Lord.
Jesus is alive, and is seated at the Father’s side,
Soon to return, for His blood-washed, without spot or wrinkle bride.
We were loved by every drop of His precious blood that flowed,
So, He that formed all we see, could our life forever hold.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
