+ The Greatest Of These Is Love...

Poem by Denis Martindale

A billion gifts can come and go from God's eternal Throne,
A billion thoughts we're meant to know, to prove Man's not alone
And prophecies and visions, too, with dreams that come by night
And secrets God could share with you that filled you with delight!
Yet none of these compares with love God offers us in Christ,
For it's by faith, grace proves enough, so billions get baptised...
For love transcends both time and space, for love endures all things,
It doesn't matter what takes place, just ask the King of Kings!

They took my Saviour and my Lord, they beat Him, whipped His back!
They pierced Him, so more blood outpoured, to make His spirit crack!
Yet there Christ stayed! Nailed to that Cross! No angels would He call...
The Father watched His Son because Christ died to save us all...
No wonder that the Devil grieved, to see the King of Love
And hates it that Mankind believed God's Son could be that tough!
And yet my Saviour died for me, that I might be baptised...
Thanks to the King of Calvary, the King called Jesus Christ!
