Christ met me there – v5

In the pit of my sin
estranged from God,
nothing I could do
nothing I could give

Christ met me there
more than I can comprehend
what it meant
that He would descend

Choosing the cross
to become clay
dying so I may live
preparing a way

Christ met me there
after rereading the earlier poem,
“No Price for His Love”
and reading comment after I posted it to

No Price for His Love

More than we can truly understand
that there is no price for his love
God freely giving
all that I ever need
even going to the cross for me
paying my cost with his life
the lamb, my brother
no price do I owe
but my humble praise
turning, conforming my life to him
in thanksgiving to my king
