Depth of My Sin - Christian Poem

Depth of my sin,
As deep as all hell.
Filthy and dead,
Putrid as well.

Light of God's love,
As bright as the sun.
Paid for my sin,
Filled with God's Son.

Depth of God's grace,
From heaven to me.
Past all I'd earn.
He set me free.

...that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
--Ephesians 3:17-19, ESV
