Oh, how the cost of sin’s too much to bear
too much for any one man, yet here
upon the cross God’s only Son
hung suff’ring once for all
most willingly in tears
and greatest agony
For you and me!
slain for all sin
and wrapped within
a tomb until His new day
dawned like His first morning
and like His first word so full of life
and perfect grace as when at very first
He spoke ‘n woke His glorious light to smite
all of night and all of death and all of sin forever!
Petra O. Hefner
