This Court Declares You Free



This Court Declares You Free
© 2017 Tom D Blakely

The Judge said, “You are guilty
And you deserve to die.”

The man said, “Yes I know that.”
And ended his reply.
The Judge looked up astonished:
“Today most tend to lie.
They don’t admit wrongdoing
And argue till they die.”

The Judge then asked a question:
“Do you regret your crimes?”
The man was very honest
“Yes, every single one…
My Lord, I know I’m guilty
But heard if I repent
My Judge could be my Saviour…
You took my punishment?”

“Indeed I died for sinners
One day at Calvary.
Your faith my child has saved you
This court declares you free.
And not just now, forever
Eternal life is yours.
Unlike self righteous sinners
Who’s faith is in themselves.”


“I have not come to call the righteous,
but sinners, to repentance.”
[Luke 5:32]
