"Christ Died For Our Sins" (1 Cor. 15:3)

A poem written by Jonathan Perreault.

Down in the ground a tomb was made,
And on the cross our Lord was laid.

That for our sins the Lord should die,
Upon the cross they raised Him high.

Above the cross the sign was used,
"Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews."

The soldiers gambled at the cross,
To win Christ's robe and gained but loss.

One thief just scoffed and turned away;
No faith had he in Christ that day.

The other thief to Jesus turned:
Believing he of heaven learned.

Into the Savior's precious side,
A spear was driven when He died.

Upon this cross for you and me
He died from sin to set us free!

Because He loves us with such love,
He is my Savior from above.

"For God so love the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but has everlasting life." (John 3:16)

"Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved!" (Acts 16:31)
