Undying Love - Poem by Adegbite Adeyinka

The Son who errs,
His father will not hold
If sin, such love, deters
Love of man is sold
Can, stool, the mind forgive
Smeared on a dish of meal and give?

My love be bought by what I see
But loving all, I seldom do
You bore the cross and paid the fee
For we, ungrateful 'who'
Albeit, the robes of our sin
For us, the scourge tore your skin.

Made us a worthy nation
In death
You burn the cloak, condemnation,
And doctor our spirit, health.
I shall speak of this undying love
Of the Father up above.

    You bore the cross and paid the fee
    For we, ungrateful 'who'
    Albeit, the robes of our sin
    For us, the scourge tore your skin. Jesus CHrist, his death on the cross and the love of the heavenly father.... you have wonderfully written about this salvific act of Christ. thank you dear poet. tony (Report) Reply

    wow superb!

    Like rays of the ascending Sun
    That through Night's teeming darkness spears,
    So shines Christ's love on everyone
    Ignoring our sinful wears. (Report) Reply
