Poem by Ed Miller: Christ Died for God


The blood He offered God was great; that precious blood I trust; For by it God could vindicate my soul, and still be just! His holiness was satisfied that day, at Calvary; He’s just, and I am justified! Christ died for God and me!

It was for God that Jesus died; salvation was His cause; For God, the Lamb was crucified to glorify His laws. His lovely Son He did not spare upon the sin-cursed tree; When Christ died for His Father there, He also died for me!

His death unveiled Love divine; His mercy cut the knot; The gift He gave to God is mine, without a stain or spot. Before His majesty I bow; I am as pure as He! The death he died for God is now imputed unto me!
