“My God, My God
why have You forsaken Me”,
the Bible answers Jesus cry
for us for us to free.
Sin is behaving like we’re God,
salvation is God substituting Himself for “man”,
justice requires a price be paid
for “man” to start fresh again.
So the Father had a foolproof plan,
let a sinless man pay for “man’s” mistakes,
thus this sinless man must be selfless and loving
to substitute Himself, “man’s” payment make.
So the Father sent His Son,
His plan now plain to see,
Jesus kept the law for us,
“man” nailed Him to the tree.
But the grave just couldn’t hold Him,
after all He is the Father’s Son,
neither the cross nor cave could bar Him,
our eternal destiny His love had won.
