1 John 4:9-10
In this the love of God was made manifest (displayed) where we are concerned: in that God sent His Son, the only begotten or [a]unique [Son], into the world so that we might live through Him.
In this is love: not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation (the atoning sacrifice) for our sins.
Love went to the cross
Love paid the cost, for our freedom today
Love wrapped himself in flesh
Nothing mediocre about His sacrifice,
He gave His all, He gave His best.
Now you and I can rest
Reaping the reward of His great success
He was wounded for our wrongdoing, chastised so that we can now have peace
Giving us absolute release from the bondage of sins snare
Who would ever think, oh, no one would ever dare
Give their life for their enemy
When the call for sacrifice was given, Love rose to the occasion
Love took the fall despite the call to die upon that cross.
Love did not retreat nor surrender to eternal defeat
But rather, gave up the Ghost and in hell He did boast of His power, glory and majesty.
Raised from the dead just like the scriptures said,
To reign with the Father above.
Gracious and full of compassion, today and forever He will be
To ever hear the faintest cry of those seeking to be free.
Free from the curse, no more guilt and shame
Eternal life to all who call on His Name.
