Life For Life
By June Stein
Jesus’ love requires of us
to love others in His Name,
How could we not in response
strive to see His Love proclaimed.
We were lost and without hope
till the Father sent His Son,
To bear all our guilt and sin
that we might in Him be one.
Love alone could bring our Lord
from His Father’s side to earth,
To take on the flesh of man
that we all might have new birth.
Living here from babe to man
to fulfill His Father’s will,
As the Sacrificial Lamb
gave His life, to life instill.
In His blood upon the cross
all our sin is washed away,
It was shed to save the lost
and it gives us life today.
When we freely take His gift
with belief and love for Christ,
All His righteousness is ours
and in Him, eternal life!
“Since we have now been justified by His blood,
how much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through Him?
For if, when we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to Him through
the death of His Son, how much more having been reconciled,
shall we be saved through His life!”
