Easter

Not earthly gold, or pearls, or diamonds

(Gleanings from the Inner Life of Ruth Bryan)

My precious Lord hung on the dreadful cross, where
He was made a curse for sinful me
where He had
my hell
that I in Him might have eternal heaven!
The precious drops which flowed were the price of
my redemption
what a price! Not earthly gold,
or pearls, or diamonds
but purest, richest blood;
the blood of Jehovah's Fellow! Here was heaven's
gold
paid to ransom sinful worms! Not for angels
were heaven's treasures thus poured out
but for
worms! Oh! wonder of wonders! My soul marvels
at such matchless love
and at the effects of it!
