Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift.
2 Corinthians 9:15 KJV
Of all the gifts that God so freely gives,
There’s none to match the one on Calvary.
The sacrifice of Christ our heart relives,
And breaks it every time, too much to see.
He willingly went forth with you in mind;
His body torn and beaten horribly.
A crown of thorns upon His head was twined;
He bore it all for you so humbly.
Then, O, upon the cross they hung our Lord
Upon the cross that’s meant for you and me!
He took our sins upon His own accord
And suffered there – my Lord! – unspeakably.
God sacrificed His Son upon the cross,
A gift so great my tongue is at a loss.
