10/6 Poem: Word Works

Standard

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

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
