AN ODE TO JESUS: OUR EDGE

Edge
The cross

Precious Jesus
not looking at our patched robe of sin,
or our weary faith and doubting soul,
or the wickedness of our hands,
he chose to bear the course of our repentance
in the likeness of a man he came,
teaching love and purity to all age.

The sacrifice he made is incomparable,
liberating us from the score of death,
redeeming our souls and perfecting his word,
giving us the power of resurrection
bringing to live our dead faith and joy
lifting our burdens and bearing our pain.

For Christ died that we may have life,
enjoy the fullness of his never failing grace
and his strong edge of protection over us…

Happy Easter to my beautiful and wonderful readers… Much love…
