Christ Died... That I May LIve!

Christ Died…  That I May Live!


Christ died on the cross… 

That I may live today!

I was separated from God…

  But Christ made a way!


His sacrifice provided mankind’s redemption!

He died for everyone!

 There’s no exemption!


Many try to “cheapen the cost.”

Of what it meant, for his death

 on the cross!


He, who was perfect, from heaven he came.

He endured so much

ridicule and shame!


The crown of thorns were placed on his head

His blood flowed that day,

 as he bled!


He said that he would draw all unto him…

That day he became the sacrifice

 for our sin!


His death meant a way of salvation for us!

His resurrection provided victory to us!


Won’t you accept his gift of a life with him?

You can have this chance

 to know him!


He’s alive today!  All can come

 and receive him!

Won’t you rest on his promises?

  And believe him?

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!
