Hebrews 12:2&3 Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider Him who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart. (NIV)

Each blow He received was what we deserve;

each insult, each curse, each abuse.

The horrible things He endured strike a nerve.

All of that torture He didn’t refuse.

He paid with His life for all of our sin;

He willingly bore awful pain.

All He asks in return is our love for Him.

Repentance for sin, Heav’n is our gain.

From the cross to Heaven our council to be;

Presenting our case before God.

All of our sins erased on that tree;

By the shedding of His precious blood.
