Poem #29 No Guilt

No Guilt

No condemnation.
No guilt.
No shame.

How can this be?

He stood condemned.
He bore the guilt.
He suffered shame.

How can this be?

I was condemned.
Mine was the guilt.
I brought Him shame.

How can this be?

He never sinned.
He did no wrong.
He was perfection.

How can this be?

A soul condemned.
A guilty heart.
A life of shame.

How can this be?

He lived for me.
He died for me.
He rose for me.

How can this be?

A soul set free.
A heart now free.
A life is free.

This is how it can be –

I was set free
Upon a tree
On Calvary!

“There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus.” (From Paul’s letter to the Christians in Rome.)
