Royston Allen


Because of Jesus


Because of Jesus I go free
Because He suffered there for me
Because He stayed and did not run
Because He said 'Your will be done'

My transgressions on Him were laid
and lash by lash my debts He paid
Blow by blow for each iniquity
As they nailed Him there upon the tree

Drop by drop for each sin He bled
To wash me clean His blood was shed
Then 'Father forgive them', He cried
As He bowed down His head and died

'Death's the wages for sin', God said
That's why He hung there in my stead
Because Jesus died I now live
Because He cried 'Father forgive'

Wonderful love He's shown to me
Greater love has no man than He
That is why I now sing His praise
And to His throne my anthem raise

    And because the tomb is empty;
    He has risen from the dead,
    We can all be saved;
    ‘cause of the blood that He shed.

    God raised up His Son;
    JESUS LIVES! WE ARE FREE!
    Thank you Jesus for saving
    A sinner like me!

    Great poem Royston, it’s good to read about the love that Jesus has, not just for you; but for all.
    Keep writing about the love of Christ.

The solitary child.
