Being Forgiven: the Price is Paid
By David Smith June 30, 2009
The Lost Son and from Isaiah we read
The Humility of Christ and devoted love to believe.
As the Father ran and kissed his son
The odour of pigs and stench did hum.
A devoted father with endless care
Embraced his son; only Christ’s love can compare.
The father’s love who sent his son;
The Lord Jesus was the blessed one.
Sinless was He to the cross was sent
Carried my sin as His blood was spent.
Suffered and died and rose for me;
The love of a father; how his son must be.
Always a parallel to Christ on the Cross;
A picture of love truly comes across.
And shedding a tear as I think of the way;
Being forgiven, what a price to pay.
By grace are ye saved through faith alone.
Christ suffered the Cross for my soul to own.
