Bankrupt Lives ~

Bankrupt Lives ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~

Guilt was erased from us that day,
and for our souls, Jesus died and bled
when the thorns of our unrighteousness
were crowned around His perfect head.

Our vile sins are the thrash marks,
that were flogged deep into His chest
the Son of God became our justification,
and paid the price ~ for our eternal rest.

Bankrupt lives, on top of faithful shoulders,
our faults and unbelief He had to bear
the burden of each of our transgressions
on the Cross of Calvary Jesus had to wear.

Our hopelessness was sealed and nailed,
then hung upon that wooden bar
spikes driven into His hands and feet
the Lamb of God became our wayward scar.

The debt of our blame and condemnation,
was plunged deep into His forgiving side
piercing through to heaven’s gate
so He could receive His faithful bride.

Our rebellious, wicked, evil ways,
caught up to Him on that promised day
when at last it was finally over
His mercy became for us, the only way.

Free, unmerited, not deserving favor,
granted by God’s grace, and grace alone
His work on the cross finally finished
now He sits upon heaven’s throne.

Oh, that glorious, wonderful day,
when Christ rose from His earthly grave
bankrupt lives, now rich and lush
for His life ~ to all ~ He gave.

Hebrews 7:27
King James Version

“Who needeth not daily, as those high priests,
to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins,
and then for the people’s: for this he did once,
when he offered up himself.”

By Grace Alone

By grace alone,
not of me . . .
in Christ through faith
is why I’m free.

By grace alone,
not of my hand
so I humbly receive
redemption’s plan.

By grace alone,
not of my deed
the Word is sufficient
for want and need.

By grace alone,
not of my thought
God and favor
cannot be bought.

By grace alone,
not of my doing
a gift in measure
worth my pursuing.

By grace alone,
not of me . . .
justification epitomized
on the cross of Calvary!

Ephesians 2:8
King James Version

“For by grace
you have been saved
through faith,

and that not of yourselves;
it is the gift of God.”

At His Feet ~

It was there on the hill of Calvary,
where Jesus died for me
it was then that I realized . . .
with Him eternally I wanted to be.

It was there that I broke,
into a million little pieces
and gave up my burdens
for His peace that never ceases.

It was looking to the cross,
that made me see my sin
it was when I asked Jesus
to come and dwell within.

It was at His very feet,
where I laid down all my sorrow
and asked Him to be
my today and my tomorrow.

It was on the hill of Calvary,
where I left my sinful life . . .
and gave to my Savior
this world, my pain, the strife!

Mark 8:34
King James Version

“And when he had called the people unto him
with his disciples also, he said unto them,
Whosoever will come after me, let him deny
himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.”
