Here's a recent one. I don't know if i've posted it on here, but if I have i'll do it again. Enjoy

Why didst thou have to give thy light
to a dark and dying world?
Why didst though have to give thy life
so that we could call you Lord?

You endured the suffering and pain,
Yet what could you stand to gain?
For giving your life and taking mine
to secure it against the seige of Time.

You hung upon the Oldrugged cross
as your body suffered and ran with blood lost.
You looked above the parade of time
to see this saddened heart of mine.

You said, I give my life for my friend
Even before the horrific torture begins.
You let us know death was your mission
so death would free us from our prisons.

You died so we would fall.
Fall down prostrate at the weathered glorious cross.
You suffered it all
so our souls would no longer pay the cost.

Now I know the answer to:

Why didst though have to give thy light
to a dark and dying world?
Why didst though have to giv eyour life
so that we could call you savior?

Thank you for giving thy light
Thank you for giving thy Grace.
Thank you for giving me Life
Thank you for revealing thy face.


"Man is never sufficiently touched and affected by the awareness of his lowly state until he has compared himself with God's majesty" - John Calvin
