Indescribable Love

In my most lowly sinful state
you spoke my name
you lifted my chin and your eyes knew my souls pitiful shame. And you - you asked me but once to upon yourself take from me my deep, dark sin. My eyes tearfully opened and met yours I saw your Holy face and readily received your loving grace.

From there I saw the nails - I touched your scars. You knew my pain, while I could not comprehend yours. You drew me near and made me your own, placing me in your family - as numerous as the stars. Oh how my soul is alive! and is made new! It recalls and cherishes those moments with you, constantly hearing those words you spoke, "My child, you are forgiven come join me in Heaven!" I finally watched as you nailed shut, and Christ's blood forever sealed Hell's gate.
