You Took My Place

Amazing love,
Amazing grace,
You gave Your life,
You took my place.
I should have died,
On Calvary's tree,
But You stepped in,
And died for me.

What can I say?
What can I do?
To show my love, 
My gratitude?
To You my Lord,
My Savior King,
For becoming my
Sin offering?

Here is my heart,
Here is my soul,
Come Lord Jesus,
Take control.
The old is gone,
You've made me new.
You died for me,
I'll live for you.

2008

    Kim, this is a treasure--a powerful, heartfelt message delivered in spare, forthright poetic form. The word economy you achieve, while maintaining flow, is remarkable. I love it!

    This one is really good! I think I'll join the club and stick it in my favourites too. I don't know how to explain it but this one just feels poetic; and of course it is spot on with the truth.
