Jesus Paid the Sacrifice!

Jesus Paid The Sacrifice!

Jesus sacrificed his life for

 you and me!
So we can be with him

 for all eternity!

His life for ours…

 a ransom was paid IN FULL,
This is why I

 I love HIM so!

Upon his head were placed

 the crown of thorns,
Enduring so much

shame and scorn.

The blood from his body

as it began to flow!

The pain inside his body,

Began to grow!

The nails placed in

 his feet and hands,
The pain he went through

 is hard to understand.

His life for ours,

 is what he gave!
His life for ours…

Is what he did trade!

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!
