Come broken to the cross….

December 7, 2011

A

nd now come, broken, to the cross,

Where Christ embraced all human loss,

And let us bow before the throne,

Of God, who gives and takes his own,

And promises – whatever toll

He takes – to satisfy our soul.

Come, learn the lesson of the rod:

The treasure that we have in God.

He is not poor nor much enticed

Who loses everything but Christ.

~John Piper, The Misery of Job and the Mercy of God
