No Greater Gift

God, Religion, Cross, Christianity, Religious

No greater gift, The Father gave His Son,
A precious gift which cannot be replaced.
The Lamb’s victory at the cross was won,
Christ in our place, yes, completely disgraced.

The Christ, not us, suffering God’s great wrath,
Why did Jesus die, and not us who sinned?
Why is such mean cruelty His chosen path,
The One who healed, who loved, who calmed the wind?

In our place, yes, His blood for us was shed,
He drank the dreaded cup, He drank it all.
The Son of Man, of God, life-giving Bread,
The Father’s cup….. full! Oh the bitter gall!

Go look and see, go look at Calvary!
That cross, what love! Go now! Do not tarry!
