I’m reblogging this poem I posted last November in response to the Daily Post’s prompt, “Champion.” 🙂
I was once a damsel, distressed;
Sin condemned me to die,
Until my sins were confessed,
It had its hold on me; I cried.
The Knight loved me enough to save;
It was because of His amazing grace,
That I was spared from the grave;
And that He came and died in my place.
He wore no armor, had no blade,
He knew that He must do this to win;
And there for three days he stayed,
And in one blow, defeated Death and Sin.
My Champion suffered the Cross for my sake,
He did all of this and more for love;
So that I could have a clean slate,
And can live with Him in Heaven above.
