Why God Gave His Son
By Tom D Blakely
God gave His only Son to die
If God is love, some may ask Why?
God’s justice and the law’s demands
Are things the world can’t understand.
To take a sinner’s view of sin
Is not the right place to begin.
For love is seen as being nice
So why the need for sacrifice?
By nature we will get it wrong
Until God’s truth begins to dawn.
For sin itself has blinded us
And pride will keep us from the cross.
For God is just and God is fair
Our sin is something He can’t bear.
It must be judged and this was done
That’s why God gave His only Son.
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son,
that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”
