Encouraging Poem Written by my 80 year old Friend...

Held by the wonder of His love for me
Held by the cross of Calvary….
Where God’s Son hung and died,
With blood flowing out of His side.

Have we really stopped to contemplate
A justice so severe, a mercy so great?
A forgiveness at such cost
For the dying and the lost.

Oh, for a heart constrained by love
To give back to the One above…
To forgive others as He forgave me,
So that they, too, might have a glimpse of Calvary.

My sins put away forever, never to be brought up again…
Only my Saviour and I know
What it cost Him for my sin.
