In light of yet in spite ofThe life that you now leadYou are deeply loved by God aboveDeeply loved indeedWho is this God of gloryWho loves you even now?Despite the fact you turn awayAnd before His throne refuse to bowIn the depths of all your sinful waysAnd in spite of all you've doneHe stretches out His hand to youAnd it points towards His precious SonSee Him there upon the crossThe things He did not have to doTo sacrifice His very lifeThat He might die instead of youHow is it that you can allowSomeone to die and take your place?And continue to live the life you leadAnd so to spit upon His faceHe died and then He rose againYou too must die todayAnd from the ashes you will riseTo find and walk the narrow wayThe arms of God are open wideTo those who come to HimAnd in these arms life springs anewAnd love is born from deep withinhttp://www.poemhunter.com/frank-mceleny/
How is it that you can allowSomeone to die and take your place?And continue to live the life you leadAnd so to spit upon His face
