Lord of love, on this day with blood did buy this chance for all to rise from ransoms paid. With forgiving grace that must not ever die, whose sacrifice laid bare with shame, betrayed. Rare, as spring's new life in immortal bloom, you cast the bounds drawn cold by grave and stone. Death yields its pious prey from tears and tomb. At last, forever, we are not alone. Glory for eternity, your light defines joy resurrected in the souls of men. Lifting hearts towards peace sensed so sublime to bring all, as one, home to God again. Forgive the agony we have put you through and hear only love when we speak of you. Rising Son Poetry Contest Sponsored by Chantelle Anne Cooke 04/04/2019

This is beautiful. God offers His forgiveness to all, but it's up to each of us to accept or reject the precious gift. It's heartbreaking to reflect on the agony that He endured on our behalf, and thankfulness flows as we reflect on His abounding love.
