The Cure

by Paul Mayes Jamar

Thank God there was a substitution
my worthless life for Jesus' crucifixion.

Christ paid my debt for my sin in full
my weakness in my flesh that’s so cruel.

Without Jesus, I would be condemned
to eternal agony in hell with all my kin.

Separated from God forever without end
that would be the worst consequence, friend.

But now I have hope of a great tomorrow
without agony, pain, and continual sorrow.

The last shall be first in the kingdom to come
just as Jesus taught the disciples as God’s Son.

The cycle has been broken from sin’s slave to a Prince
of God’s kingdom advanced on my knees in prayer and silence.

But all came into focus on that great day He died
for me and those believing to be redeemed with the tide.

A washing of His blood cleansed us, and we’re pure
made whole and accepted to God, for Jesus is the cure!
