Sweat and Blood

Condemnation was my lot.
I soon found that I could not
Earn salvation that I sought
By my own sweat and blood. 

Then I heard, yes I was taught-
My redemption had been bought
(Not with silver or with gold:
Anything that could grow mold.)
But with Christ’s precious blood!

By grace through faith- I took hold
Of his blessings, manifold.
“Please don’t let my love grow cold.
Remind me of the blood.”

-Wills Osborn (8/26/20)

  1. That’s it! And I love others better because of the love I have received from Him.
