The Ultimate Sacrifice


The Ultimate Sacrifice

JESUS, we are so very blessed
how could we ever repay...
All that You gave us so freely
please help us to not betray...
The sacrifices You made for us
and the Love You showed to all
How could we ever forsake You, Lord
may we heed Your Gracious call.
The things of this world distract us
and we are drawn away each day
Our attention on things that don't matter
and we are easily led astray...
Jesus, keep Your Hand upon us
the wayward children that we are
By your shed blood we are victorious
and You are never, ever afar.
So we humbly invite You to fill us up
with Your Spirit from above
May we honor You with our life
and share your bountiful Love.

(c) 2018 Karen Langford Brown

"Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to
God a sacrifice of praise-the fruit of lips that confess
His name. And do not forget to do good and to share
with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased."
Hebrews 13:15-16
