The Debt

The sinner's debt has Jesus paid,
And saved the world from Satan's raid.
"Death, death," rang from hell;
And thus did sin's death knell.

In anger, He left the throne;
Stormed the earth with victory tone.
He dealt with sin once for all;
And stilled the rumble and the gall.

In pain, he cleared the debt
That God's just anger be met.
For the Father's sake, and mine,
He let heaven's light shine.

Weighed down by sin and the cross,
He plodded up Calvary, to the devil's loss.
There the holy died for the sinner,
And made sin's victim the winner.

His action, the world can't grasp,
Blinded by sin in tight clasp.
So it reacted with angry scorn;
And dared not his death mourn.

The world still wears its shame;
Denies the power of Jesus' name.
So the devil romps with glee, strutting;
While the world cowers, hurting.
