Gods Greatness And His Love - Poem by Mac Wilkey

He’s big enough to hang the stars in Heaven;
His power is such He calmed the raging sea.
He’s pure enough to be the Lamb Most Holy,
But He loved enough to die for you and me.

His power is such His words brought forth creation.
Sin then entered in deceitfully.
He could have started over if He’d wanted,
But He had a plan to rescue you and me.

He’s strong enough to withstand all temptation
Though Satan tempted Him relentlessly.
He only asked His bitter cup be taken,
But He loved enough to taste of death for me.

He’s pure enough that He alone could die for
A human race filled with iniquity.
Unblemished as a Lamb He stood in Heaven,
But He came to earth to die as sin for me.

He’s big enough to hang the stars in Heaven;
His power is such He calmed the raging sea.
He’s pure enough to be the Lamb Most Holy,
But He loved enough to die for you and me.
