I LOVE YOU by Chris Battye

I LOVE YOU

 

I love you He said

As one best friend denies and another betrays

 

I love you He said

As they spat on Him from every side

I love you He said

As mockingly they deride

 

I love you He said

As they crush a crown of thorns on His head

And hail Him `King of the Jews’

 

I love you He said

As the whip lashed upon His back,

Lash upon lash

(`By His stripes we are healed’)

 

I love you He said

As lies upon lies they try to accuse Him

I love you He said

When not guilty He is found

Yet sentenced to death

 

I love you He said

As nails drive into His hands and feet

And He is crucified

 

I love you He said

As He pleads `Father forgive’

I love you He said

When He cried `It is finished’

Bowed His head and died.

The wonderful truth is, that although Christ died on that terrible Good Friday, he rose from the dead, conquering sin, death and hell forever on Easter Sunday! Now HE IS ALIVE FOREVERMORE!!

 

HE LOVES YOU!  DO YOU LOVE HIM?
