The Price Paid

Poem by Carolynn J. Scully (c)1999

Men saw an execution.
God saw a sacrifice.
Men saw a solution.
God saw that it paid a price.

Men cowered in the darkness.
God's heart was torn in pain.
Men ran in guilty fear.
God's judgement would reign.

Men jeered at the stench of death,
Ignored impassioned pleas.
God inhaled holy incense.
Forgiveness was set free.

Men must seek salvation
Through Christ, God's only Son.
For God so loved the world
That the victory was won.
