Easter Poems, God Loves Us

God Loved Us, So He Sent His Son

 

Edward P. Kimball

 

Resurrected-Christ-Wilson-Ong-212048God loved us, so he sent his Son,

Christ Jesus the atoning One,

To show us by the path he trod

The one and only way to God.

 

He came as man, though Son of God,

And bowed himself beneath the rod.

He died in holy innocence,

A broken law to recompense.

 

Oh, love effulgent, love divine!

That in his offering I have part

And hold a place within his heart.
