When Jesus Turned His Back On Me.

I turned my back on Jesus,
So He turned His back,
On me.
And when He turned,
My soul burned with guilt,
For my eyes saw the scars,
That He bared,
And the pain of mine,
That He shared,
And I saw the days,
When I gave up,
But He,
Still cared.

And showed me that
My suffering was not unfair...
Presented through these scars,
these scars inflicted,
when He took credit,
credit for my sins,
And co-signed with God,
To give me a chance,
A chance at life again.
