son of god


(07/01/11

God had a plan- so he made his son a man
He knew his son would have to be the sacrificial lamb
So that this world could understand.

JESUS offered his life so that the world could be free
He offered his life for you and me.
He knew that his life would be short lived
And come to an end.
Yet he preached his fathers words to foe and friend.

He knew deep inside his soul
That someday , the world he would hold
And of this -he was told.
So much love he had inside
And this love he could not hide.

As he preached the word of God
He described his earthly mission.
The lord had appointed him to preach
The gospel to the poor, the rich , the destitute
And anyone who would listen.

His father had told him that he had healing hands
And could heal people through out the land.
To be able to cure the blind, the lame, and the possessed
These were the biggest tests.

Then the day finally came that they would take him away
Accused by his so called peers, under the screams
Laughter and jeers.

Stripped and whipped and crowned with thorns
And blood running down his face
This was the ultimate disgrace
For a man who was said to be a king
That he was stripped of every thing.

Although the cross he carried was made of wood
It is something that is still not understood.
That we must all carry a cross in this life
This is our ultimate sacrifice.
