Oh, my Lord...
Why would You love me?

Your greatness exceeds human comprehension
and Your wealth surpasses the Earth's riches.
In Your mind's eye, my life has been viewed
and my judgment awaits its sentencing.

Before my existence, Your Blood was cruelly shed -
spilled for my sins, both conceived and committed.
You made Yourself vulnerable to man's hatred
for saving flawed souls, such as myself.

To leave the comfort of Your heavenly realm,
for the sole purpose of being slaughtered as the sacrificial Lamb,
prior to my knowledge and acceptance of You,
supernaturally defines the concept of risk.

I have visualized the silent tears
that stained Your cheeks during Your Crucifixion,
but I am unable to fully appreciate the pain
that You suffered on my humble behalf.

Oh, my Lord...
Why would You continue to love me?

hi again,

for some reason i am strangely drawn to your work.  the thing that struck me about this piece is that this is the one thing, in all our daily hurry and worry that we forget to do; to meditate and contemplate simply the wonder of who He is.  And to praise Him for that and for what He did.

This is what keeps us seeing things through His eyes and not our own.  And then we have the audacity to wonder why we get lost when we forget to praise.
