He looked across this world He’d made,
Splashed and splattered with sin and sorrow.
The people were ashamed, angry, and afraid.
Afraid of truth, and of trusting, and of tomorrow.
And as He scanned the earth, He heard.
Crying? Yes. He kneeled down to the sand.
It was the sad solo, sung without word,
The blood of the innocent crying out from the land.
The hills could not hide the sin that it bore.
They cracked and quaked as He passed them by.
He held His head in His hands as He walked along His shore.
Ah! My creation! A tear fell from His eye.
And then He wept aloud, and covered His face.
And remembered the day He created man.
Even then He knew; His palm held a trace
Of what it would take to create him again.
And as He wept, His tears spilled on to the trace,
now a wound, still fresh with blood.
He had bought her back; He had made her as new.
He had paid the price that no one else could.
Yet, they did not care or did not believe
That He had redeemed all of their sin.
So still they hid behind useless fig leaves,
And refused to leave the darkness they were in.
Then He made His way up the highest mount,
The people scurried beneath Him, unaware He was there.
The sins were grave, far too many to count.
Chasing vanity upon vanity, with not a moment to spare.
What had happened to His once adoring bride?
Why was the light they had shared now fickle and fade?
He thru back His head and spread His arms wide.
“Again, I redeem you. My love, I HAVE PAID!”
Then He took up His shield and sharpened His sword,
And mounted His white horse of fire.
“I have come for her. I am the LORD!
And My right hand shall never tire.”
Then the foundations shook, and the skies burned red,
As He made His way through the fog of death.
At the sound of His voice all darkness fled,
Not a demon or devil could take a breath.
Then He rode through the valleys, over hills, and cross sea,
Trampling lies, shame and guilt to the ground.
“I have come to set the captive free!
For all who are lost, to be found!”
“I am the Truth, the Way and the Light,”
He shouted for all earth to hear.
“I have redeemed you, my beloved, by My power and might,
He who has an ear, let him hear.”
Then He reached into His very Spirit,
And pulled out a light, as bright as the sun.
He poured out this light, on all who came near it.
“Tell everyone you know about what I have done!”
“For I have conquered sin and the chains that bind;
I have paid the price of your penalty.
I am your God, you are mine;
Now take up your light and follow Me.
Now take up your light and follow Me.”Share:
