A poem. . .

Here’s a poem I wrote—believe it or not—in the “Notes” app on my iPhone. It’s a bit cheesy, but I suppose it could work as a song at some point.

“I Bear Witness”

Let the mighty oceans roar
And the rain from heaven pour
As the great Almighty stands
With the Christ at his right hand

Let the nations testify
And the earth in wonder cry
That this awesome God of all
Would redeem us from the fall

Listen to the words of love
That call out to you and me
Through a purchase paid in blood
Heaven’s Son has set us free

See the guilty human race
Beat and spit upon his face
Yet he reached down from above
Kissed the world in perfect love

Now I bow before the throne
With perfection not my own
For I’m clothed in righteousness
Saved by grace, no more, no less

Sacred blood was shed for me
That through death new life I see
Bought by heaven’s love divine
Endless life I claim as mine

I bear witness to the love
That calls out to you and me
Through a purchase paid in blood
Heaven’s Son has set me free
