His Sacrifice
My blood for his
His sacrifice
Such a priceless gift
His tears traded
For all of mine
Now I partake of the bread
And partake of the wine
His son given
So my life could be saved
His son given
Eternity: the price paid
Two broken bodies
Mine and his
The only difference
Is that one still lives
Tender mercies
Come at a price
Tender mercies
Are traded for my life

The author's comments:
This piece is all about how christ died for us on the cross and that he didn't do it for no reason. It says in the poem only one of the two broken bodies is still living. Think on this. If only one can live at a time then how many of us were dead before he came to take our place? Tender mercies are traded for my life means more than he died for me. It means that in order for us to live God had to give up more than just a life. He had to give up a leader, a savior, a hero, and a son, to save a race that he knew could never fathom love for what it was until they were already with him. Think about just how much he loves us to go thru all that loss to save such people as ouselves.
