Why God Gave His Son

God gave His only Son to die
If God is love, some may ask Why?
God’s justice and the law’s demands
Are things the world can’t understand.
To take a sinner’s view of sin
Is not the right place to begin.
For love is seen as being nice
So why the need for sacrifice?

When we are called to come to God
Christ is the only way.
We praise Him for He bore our sin
A debt we could not pay.

By nature we will get it wrong
Until God’s truth begins to dawn.
For sin itself has blinded us
And pride will keep us from the cross.
For God is just and God is fair
Our sin is something He can’t bear.
It must be judged and this was done
That’s why God gave His only Son.

When we are called to come to God
Christ is the only way.
We praise Him for He bore our sin
A debt we could not pay…
We praise Him for His sacrifice

That washed our sins away!

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son,
that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”
[John 3:16]
