Sober Sacrifice

Jesus, man, fully bore
The pain of all our sin.
Jesus, God, fully bore
The guilt of all our sin.

Without drugs, split with pain,
Our Lord was crucified.
Sinless Lamb, for our stain,
He hung and bled and died.

Buried, then, in a tomb
Well-guarded, sealed away,
Body dead, in that room—
Flat, waiting 'til third day.

We have won, thought his foes,
Until the third day came.
He’s alive! Christ arose!
And nothing’s now the same!

When he died—God’s blood spilled—
There was a cosmic strife.
But he rose! Death’s been killed.
It’s swallowed up in life. 

And they offered him wine mixed with myrrh, but he did not take it. And they crucified him... (Mark 15:23-24 ESV)

Christ did so much and suffered so much for us. My love for him is so small by comparison.
