The Blood Sacrifice

The Blood Sacrifice
Covered with the robe of righteousness
His blood poured out for me
Sinless God, our Jesus man
Tortured, bled and died to free
His wounded side for those not there
His heart, broken for you, for me
Not one bone touched, nailed on that cross
Raised up on the splintery tree
Penalty paid for liberty
Priceless freedom He gave
We need but ask forgiveness now
Our creator came to save
His wounds overflowed
Jesus' heart did break
Pierced by Satan's Roman spear
Killed. Scarlet flowed, An earth erupting quake.
Scattered disciples, Mary wept.
They entombed and buried Him.
The Lamb of God, perfect One
He who knew no sin.
He'd restored the lame
Given sight to the blind
Healed the sick
Touched the demonized mind
And these life deeds
Love freely gave
And then was
Sentenced to His grave
Red garnet, scarlet, flowing down
For crucifiers to see
Did death really win, that terrible day
Or did He die to set me free?
Luke 23:43-48 And Jesus said to him, "Assuredly, I say to you, today you will be with Me in Paradise." Now it was the sixth hour, and there was darkness all over the earth until the ninth hour. Then the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was torn in two. And when Jesus had cried out in a loud voice, He said "Father, into Your hands I commit My spirit." Having said this He breathed His last. So when the centurion saw what had happened, he glorified God saying, "Certainly this was a righteous Man!" And the whole crowd who came together to that sight, seeing what had been done, beat their breasts and returned.
