God's Love #1 - Poem by Mary Ryan

The world so selfish and so evil
That no redemption seemed in sight
but God loved the world so much
His only Son would pay the price
The nails just wouldn't hold Him
Had there been another way
It was love that held Him there
On that dark and hopeless day
Three days later a woman still grieving
Aduty out of love she came to do
An empty grave was there to greet her
Yet tshe did not understand
Then her living Lord, he spoke to her
Changed her sadness into joy
The good news-she couldn't hide it!
She just had to go and share
Though sinning comes so easy
There always is a cost
Atime of pleasure is so brief
If our eternity is lost
So when your life seems hopeless
And you feel you've lost your way
Remember God who loves you
And the price He had to pay
The nails just wouldn't hold Him
Had there been another way
It was love that held Him there
On that dark and hopeless day
