Forever Free

Laid upon His shoulders
     and bound securely there,
Every sin we committed,
     past, present and future,
Once, for all, Jesus carried
     them to the top of a cross,
Not one Him dare sparing,
     bent on dumping each and every
          into the deepest and darkest of pits.

Having tasted sour wine,
Jesus said: "It is finished!"
And then bowing His head,
     He breathed His last.

As His very last breath
     untied sins across all time,
They fell from Jesus' back
     end over end over end over...
Tumbling forever far as
     the North is from the South,
Along with the author of lies,
     and his entourage of deception
          into the bottomless of sulfur and fire.

Truth from here be told,
We now know the Truth,
And as we believe, the Truth
     sets us forever free.¹

¹the many ways to describe what Jesus
did by dying for our sins upon the cross:
     He forgives our sins
           covers our sins with His blood
           removes our sins from us
                as far as the East is from
                the West
           washes us of our sins
           throws them all behind His back,
                to not be seen anymore
           sweeps away our transgressions
           remembers our sins no more
           casts all our sins into the depths
                of the sea
