The Word

The words I hear echo around me,
Words of my Lord and Savior, Jesus:
He who gives up his life for me shall save it,
Love those who hurt and persecute you,
Do not judge, and you will not be judged,
Forgive and you shall be forgiven.
His words, his spirit lives in me,
He is my master, my God:
He is the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit;
My heart is held by him,
He died for every sin I have committed,
As the rain falls I look up from
The wet ground,
Looking up, I hear the crying,
I see my Lord nailed to
That wooden cross.

His body in pain, bleeding, tortured,
He has been laughed at and scorned,
Though he begged his Father to forgive them,
For they knew not what they did,
Our eyes meet, am I even worthy
To see my Savior;
All I see in his eyes is love,
He speaks to me, no one else hears:
I am dying for you because I love you,
You are my knight, where the armor
I have provided for you,
Spread my word, live the life,
Be one with me, and I shall be one with you.
Oh my Lord, how I have failed,
Forgive me, I love you with
All of my heart and soul,
Please forgive me.
