Two Decisions

by Mark Weinrich

I am overwhelmed
by Heaven’s Prize
that He would assume
for all my ugliness
for all the hidden sins
I’ve protected from
the light of day.

How could this
Cherished One
bear all my shame
and accept me as I am?
Why would I 
hesitate to repent
when I know 
the brutal course
He chose to rescue me?
His decision 
linked with mine
has changed today
and my eternity.
