Love Flowed Like A River

This particular poem came to me one day when I was meditating on the meaning of the Cross and what
Jesus actually did for us when He died. I hope this poem helps you, too, to remember and be thankful
for the amazing love He has for us which was demonstrated by His awesome sacrifice.

Just think!  Even though we are not worthy, our dear Lord Jesus was willing to lay down His life for you & me.

This is the TRUE meaning of love.



Love flowed like a river
From the cross that blessed day,
For when Jesus shed His precious blood,
He washed all my sins away.

By the stripes He bore upon His back,
Every sickness and disease were healed,
And with the crown of thorns upon His head,
His majesty was revealed.

The nails that pierced His hands and feet
Did not hold Him on the tree –
For they were just a symbol,
Of His love for you and me.

As He yielded up His life in love,
His friends could only mourn –
The earth shook, the sky went dark,
And in the temple the veil was torn.

At that moment the barriers came down
Between us and God above,
So now we can freely enter in
To the fullness of God's love.

They took Him down and buried Him,
And thought that was the end.
He had told them all what lay in store –
They just could not comprehend.

For He rose again, He is alive,
He's banished fear and strife –
Because death could not hold Him down,
I now have eternal life.

So won't you reach out to Him
And give to Him your heart?
So He can fill you with His peace
And from your side He'll never depart.
