Why should we feel at a loss
When we see Him hanging from a cross?
With His life he did pay
For the sins we commit every day.
We can sit here and ask why
Our Prince of Peace had to die.
Maybe our minds will one day realize
That if we truly open our eyes,
We could see His pained face
That knew all our disgrace.
Eyes are blind to truly see
Why Jesus died for you and me.
Only when we see through the heart
Will the distance between Him and us depart.
Blessed are those who believe
That all of our hurt He can relieve
If we stop trying to demand
And instead try to understand.
Stop living life as if it’s a race.
When you come face to face
With the heart of the Son,
You will know you have already won,
For when you accept the Lord in your heart,
From Him you will have be apart.
You and I, we will then know
That in Christ’s love we can grow,
And we will no longer feel at a loss,
For He gave us His love when He died on that cross.
