Poetry: Freely Given : I deal in hope

I deal in hope : Carolyn R Scheidies

Poetry: Freely Given

And this is life eternal, that they might know you
the only true God, and Jesus Christ
whom you have sent. John 17:3

He gave up Heaven’s glory,
To live as a common man,
Died on Calvary for our sin,
To fulfill God’s holy plan.

For only God could care enough,
His own creation to save,
Offering for us, His very life,
A life He freely gave.

Jesus paid the supreme sacrifice,
Yet lives forever within,
Bringing peace and joy and hope,
To all who come to Him.

Thank you, Lord, for loving me so much that you came into my world to reach me. Help me learn more of you as I daily read your Word. Amen.
