His Love: A Poem

I wrote this poem while in Bible college. It was a love letter from my heart to the Lord. I was quite young at the time and had a lot of hopes and ambitions for changing the world for Jesus Christ. We are all quite idealistic in our youth, and think that anything is possible. I am much older now and, though idealism has given way, in many areas, to the realities of life, it is still my ambition to be a servant of Jesus Christ for the rest of the time He gives me on this earth. And I still believe that He can change the life of anyone who asks Him into their heart. I hope that you enjoy the poem. It is simply entitled: His Love.


  I could never comprehend, that love you gave to me; 
  When you sent your only Son, to die upon a tree.

  Oh the pain you must have felt, to send your Son away;
  But you knew He had to go; the price for sin to pay.

  The day He hung on that cross, you made Him sin for me;
  And you raised Him from the dead, for all the world to see.

  Christ has paid the debt in full, and now I can be free;
  Because He lives I live too, eternally with thee.

  I could never pay you back, for all you've given to me;
  But I'll show my gratitude, by telling men of Thee. 

  That they may know of Your love, you showed to them that day;
  You sent Jesus Christ to earth, the price of sin to pay.

You are so right lifegate. God can still use us for great things if we are willing vessels. I am grateful that He chose me to serve Him.

GT,

The poem was beautiful. I like what you said, "We are all quite idealistic in our youth, and think that anything is possible." I remember those days, and thanks be to God, anything is still possible--exceedingly, abundantly more than we can ask or think! Thanks for sharing!
