An Eternal Legacy
Frances Gregory Pasch
You could have come down from the cross
And spared Yourself great pain
For there was nothing stopping You…
Yet You chose to remain.
You knew that someone had to pay
The price for mankind’s sin.
You knew that if You turned Your back
The Enemy would win.
Despite the people’s jeering
And defaming of Your name,
You walked the road to Calvary
Enduring unjust shame.
You let them nail You to the cross
Without a word or sigh
So we could have eternal life…
In our place You would die.
The priceless legacy You left
Is filled with love and grace…
You promise that if we believe
We’ll see You face to face.
