10/6 Poem: Word Works

Standard

The work of God’s Word
Is that He be heard
By which I mean
That we can be seen

The point of His letter
Is to love Him better
By helping me see
Just how He loves me

This sounds very nice
But hides a steep price
For what He wants most
Is I give up my ghost!

I cannot tell a lie:
God wants me to die
So I can be more
Like the One I adore

This is the truth
He’s shown us since Ruth:
My world must be torn
So that Christ can be born

The craziest part
Is that this is the start
Of how God heals my heart
With His Word torn apart
