The Sacrifice

THE SACRIFICE: About the maker of all things that liveth. Through Him, we breathe...

On the tree of woe
A spirit gave up his soul
For a man to be set free
His blood-making decree

A being so noble
An immortal so adorable
He willingly gave up the ghost
For the ones, he loves the most

We who mocked him
We who cursed him
We who spat on him
We who jeered at him

For mankind's gain
He died bearing our pain
Taking away our shame
Sparkling up a new flame

Blinded by affection
Moved with compassion
He ate our barley of doom
And drank our wine of gloom

On the road to condemnation
He offered us a lift to redemption
Stripes of misery he collected
His body looked pale and dejected

For the sake of the lost
He paid the heavy cost
Our iniquities he bore
Settling an unsettled score

On the thresholds of skull
He took the fall
Yielding himself for the saved
And for the unsaved.
