The Expense for the Prize | Poem

Updated on June 28, 2016

The exchanger in his trade

The fee in tears he offered

The ultimate Sacrifice paid

Never have I wondered-

The expense for the prize


Not mine will, but your (God)

The price for human stability

That reconciles man back to God

Never have I wondered-

The expense for the prize


A crown of thorns he beared

Acrown of glory and honor

We now receive in God

Never have I wondered-

The expense for the prize


Falsely accused for judgment

Averting judgment to condemnation

For the redemption of Man

Never have I wondered-

The expense for the prize


The stripes on his back

The pain he bore

Enjoyment in health we have

Never have I wondered-

The expense for the prize


The cross he carried

The burden of sin lifted

Give us a lighter yolk

Never have I wondered-

The expense for the prize


Stripped of his clothing

Inputting on us his righteousness

That removes every filthy rag

Never have I wondered-

The expense for the prize


Thirsty, but feed of vinegar

Stream of living water

Our pride possession

Never have I wondered-

The expense for the prize

The giving up of his spirit in death

The infilling of the Holy Spirit

Induced on humanity

Never have I wondered-

The expense for the prize


The sin offering of a son

The eternal life we receive

To be connected to God forever

Never have I wondered-

The expense for the prize

    This is a great reminder of the value placed upon our redemption. Yet, we do not realize the cost of the gift. Truly stated. Thank you.

    Good morning, "abbaelijah" what a profoundly deep poem. It is truly a stellar tribute. I wrote a song entitled, O What a Love, in the verse I say, O can't you see the price that Jesus had to pay, to ransom our souls and wash all our sins away, We are saved by His grace and by faith we've been set free, O can't you see the price Jesus paid for you and for me, O what a love. It is a quaking moment to realize the price the prize very cost. Voted up and have a great week.
