About the Poem

A life of sadness, fear and loneliness was changed the day I discovered Him. Why did it take so long? I don't know. What I do know is that His love changed my life, my outlook on life and my destiny. Nothing I can do can repay Him for His love. Nothing I do can separate me from His love. To Him, I will be forever grateful.

'By the works of the Law no flesh will be justified in His sight; for through the Law comes the knowledge of sin. But now apart from the Law the righteousness of God has been manifested, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets, even the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all those who believe.' Romans 3:20-22

Whew! That's A Relief!

He carved them on the tablets made of stone
A glimpse of holiness - His measure shown
To teach us that there isn't anyone
Whose righteous in His sight except the Son.

Perfection, nothing less, the Law demands
A burden and a curse are its commands
To keep them all but fail in only one
You break the whole and prove yourself undone.

He came to us a light unto the earth
To tell us of God's love and of our worth
His life fulfilled the Law, He broke not one
Lamb slain for all, the curse has been undone.

So blind, receive your sight and sing His praise
He paid your debt, be thankful all your days
Lift grateful voices high to heaven's throne
The Law's now in your heart not carved in stone.
