The Heart of Christ

Oh how can words express the heart of Christ?
The heart of One so full of grace and love.
The Lovely One, He died, yes…. sacrificed,
He came for us, willing…. then disposed of.

The Christ, gentle and meek, as He sure was,
Bearing the weight of all our sin and shame.
But why, for what reason? What was the cause?
To seek and save, His heart was set aflame.

Jesus pleased God on that most dreadful cross,
Smitten by God, this was the Father’s plan.
Christ went through hell, darkness…. our gain, His loss,
For us He bled, the King, He bled….. God-man.

Oh how can words express the heart of Christ?
He freely chose, He chose to pay the price.
