When you are freed by Jesus from all sin

And come down off the cross a new born man,

The joy that floods your heart will then begin

Like Jews from Babylon that homeward ran.

The chains of slavery are now removed;

You climb from darkness to a warming light.

The promise of salvation has been proved

For now you’re led with peace and fresh delight.

It seems the very hills sing out in glee,

And all the birds praise Jesus with one voice:

“Another soul is saved! Now glory be!”

The Holy Spirit swells and we rejoice.

That rustling sound you hear is clapping trees;

The news of your redemption’s on the breeze!

~~~~~~~~~~~

For ye shall go out with joy,

and be led forth with peace:

the mountains and the hills shall break forth

before you into singing,

and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.

Isaiah 55:12 KJV

9-27-14 Proof of Love

Nailing Christ on the Cross

We sin as if it’s all we know to do,

Especially before Christ touched our souls,

But while we rolled in sin without a clue

Our Saviour long ago was in control.

God loves us knowing how we really are;

He sent His only Son to bleed and die.

Before we lived Christ bore the heavy scar;

Before we’re saved God’s promise did apply.

Not one of us deserve redemption’s kiss,

But God knew that and still He sent His Son.

The greatest prophets were one time amiss,

No better than the meanest man undone.

God proved His love for us upon the cross;

Christ died that we might live to come across.

 ~~~~~

But God commendeth his love toward us,

in that, while we were yet sinners,

Christ died for us.

Romans 5:8 KJV
