The Sacrifice of Jesus


Jesus gave his life for

 people like me!

Because of his sacrifice,

 I can be free!

His life for mine,

is what was paid!

A way to heaven

has now been made!

On his head were placed

 the crown of thorns,
Enduring so much

 shame and scorn!

The blood from his body…

It flowed that day!

He paid the price…

On Calvary that day!

The nails were placed in

 his feet and hands,
The pain he went through

 is hard to understand.

His life for mine is

 what was given!
That my life can be changed!

And sins forgiven!


Hallelujah to the lamb,

that was slain!

I’m so thankful for him!

And glad that he came!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
