Connected 4 Christ - Where christians connect through music and the word.
Connecting through Poetry
In days gone by there reigned in man
A foolish, hateful spite
He turned his eyes from God above
And sought his own delight
And yet each sin brought no relief
From empty, longing hearts
There only came more misery
With ev'ry flaming dart
And so some men began to cry
For bonds to be restored
For God to come and soothe their fears
And mend the hearts so torn
And so the Father sent His Son
To testify of Him
To show the world how great He loved
Despite their wayward sins
And doomed to pain, rejection, scorn
The Son chose anyway
To clothe Himself in earthly skins
And meet that fateful day
Through all His life He taught and loved
He sought to give new hope
And yet by friends He was betrayed
And bound in chains and rope
He suffered strikes from whips and glass
As silent as a lamb
They mocked and broke the Bread of Life
Till floors with red blood ran
And still He stayed, no call for help
To Father up above
He knew that man would soon be saved
By godly, holy love
And so they took Him to the cross
And nailed Him to that tree
By blood our sins were made as snow
And mankind was set free
The Bible speaks of sin and man
And says that we are blessed
Our sins are now as far from us
As east is from the west
And do you know how far the east
And west are by love made?
Stretch out your hands, like Christ had done
And keep your arms so splayed
Now in the mirror all is clear
My sister, and my brother
It's just as far as one scarred hand
Is from the very other..
