03 Battle For The Eternal Destiny Of Humankind - Poem by Royston Allen

III - The sacrifice was made

Then that awful day came in God’s great plan
when He was taken aside by sinful man
and made to climb the hill to Calvary’s tree
where He was to die for our sin and set us free.

Upon Golgotha’s hill the battle took place
the fight for the future of the human race.
In penalty for our sin His body was impaled
as upon the cross the Son of God was nailed.

The warfare commenced on this earthly plain
as alone He hung there in agony and pain.
A battle had to be fought and a victory won
by the Lord Jesus Christ, God’s Only Son.

Those gathered around the cross looking on
ranted and raged saying, “If He is Gods Son”
“Then let Him come down and leave the battle scene.”
(Dear Lord, how different things would then have been!)

(to be continued …)
