Salvation Stanzas, Reasons and Rhymes

allHis - because it is!

at the foot of the cross

He Did

The dead did rise,
The lame did walk,
The blind did see,
The mute did talk,
The poor did listen,
The deaf did hear,
The lepers did heal,
The demons did fear.

MT 2022

Luk 7:22-23  Jesus answered and said to them, “Go and tell John the things you have seen and heard: that the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, the poor have the gospel preached to them. 
Luk 7:23  And blessed is he who is not offended because of Me.” 

Redemption

Our sin led the only innocent Man
To suffer and take the blame,
The high and holy Son of God,
On the cross bore our sin and our shame
But the Lamb of God would rise again
To fulfill every promise and claim,
And those who trust in the blood of Christ
Find redemption and life in His name.

MT 2022

Eph 1:7  In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace 

Banquet Hall

I am all too painfully aware,
Of what Jesus has saved me from,
And altogether stand amazed,
At His glorious kingdom to come,

For on the cross Christ took away,
My sin- the entire sum,
And now welcomes me into His banquet hall,
When I only expected a crumb.

MT 2022

Mat 15:27  And she said, “Yes, Lord, yet even the little dogs eat the crumbs which fall from their masters’ table.” 
Mat 15:28  Then Jesus answered and said to her, “O woman, great is your faith! Let it be to you as you desire.” And her daughter was healed from that very hour.

Lost Found

He did not come for the righteous,
But calls sinners to repent,
For Christ came to seek and save lost,
To reclaim wayward sheep He was sent.

For we all need His grace and forgiveness,
And His power and might to defend,
Along with His tender mercies and love,
So in Christ you can trust and depend

MT 2022

Luk 19:10  for the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.

Gospel

We are called proclaim,
The gospel of peace,
To give light to the blind,
And to prisoners release,
By Christ’s dying breath,
Death’s sting would cease,
For Jesus Christ is the gospel,
Heaven’s true centerpiece.

MT 2022

Luk 4:18  “THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD IS UPON ME, BECAUSE HE HAS ANOINTED ME TO PREACH THE GOSPEL TO THE POOR; HE HAS SENT ME TO HEAL THE BROKENHEARTED, TO PROCLAIM LIBERTY TO THE CAPTIVES AND RECOVERY OF SIGHT TO THE BLIND, TO SET AT LIBERTY THOSE WHO ARE OPPRESSED;

How

How many times does God have to say,
That He loves you with all His heart,
For He gave His one and only Son,
To give sinners a brand new start,
And what greater way could Jesus make known,
The depth of His love and His grace,
Than by His atoning sacrifice,
When He went to the cross in our place.

MT 2022

1 Ch 17:19  O LORD, for Your servant’s sake, and according to Your own heart, You have done all this greatness, in making known all these great things.

Night Light

You walk by our side,
Through the darkest night,
Your brilliance makes,
The darkness take flight,
All You ask is to trust,
In Your Spirit not sight,
And You promise You’ll make,
Our darkest night light.

MT 2022

Joh 8:12  Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.” 

Psa 139:11  If I say, “Surely the darkness shall fall on me,” Even the night shall be light about me;
