I apologize for not posting a poem last week, I forgot until it was too late. This is the poem I meant to post last week, and I hope I will be able to schedule my posts a week in advance from here on out, now that I have a bit of a buffer of poems.
This poem was written as I tried to think up words that would go to the tune of There is a Green Hill Far Away that would carry a similar meaning.
The Night my Savior Died for Me
The night my savior died for me
I wonder if I cried
To know the infinite sacrifice
Paid to make me divine.
The day my Savior rose again
Did I shed tears of joy
That I, engraved upon His palms
Could live with Him someday?
Whene’er my Savior answers me
And my beseeching prayer
I feel again His love for me
And His belonging care.
The times my Savior lives in me
I love with all my soul.
I yearn to give my all to Him
And through Him, be made whole.
