Posts Tagged ‘punishment the same’

 

 Three crosses silhouetted against the sky,

 A thief dying on one – he didn’t get by.

 A thief is also dying on the third frame;

 His sin was similar, his punishment the same.

 But Who dies on that middle cross,

 What’s He done – that life should be lost?

 Is He a big sinner?  Say, what is His crime?

 He had no sin, friend, till He took yours and mine.

 His death is a redemptive death;

 He replaced, ah, replaces, mortal man.

The Son of God died for sinners –

Have you ever heard of such a plan?
