Sacrificial Love


What is love without sacrifice?

How deep the Father's love for us,

How vast beyond all measure;

that He should give His only Son,

to make a wretch His treasure.

How great the pain of searing loss,

the Father turns His face away;

as wounds which mar the Chosen One

bring many sons to glory.

Behold the Man upon a cross:

my sin upon His shoulders;

ashamed, I hear my mocking voice,

call out among the scoffers.

It was my sin that held Him there,

until it was accomplished;

His dying breath has brought me life,

I know that it is finished.

I will not boast in anything,

no gifts, no power, no wisdom;

but I will boast in Jesus Christ,

His death and resurrection.

Why should I gain from His reward?

I cannot give an answer;

but this I know with all my heart:

His wounds have paid my ransom.

"For God so [greatly] loved and dearly prized the world, that He [even] gave His [One and] only begotten Son, so that whoever believes and trusts in Him [as Saviour] shall not perish, but have eternal life."

John 3:16
