Just Like... Him

by Dave Mudford © 2023

like fleas upon a dog infest
so does sin's hidden schemes bequest,
corrupting shadows hide the light
dismissing joy that once stood bright.

like thorns upon a rose inflict
so does pride's torment cause conflict,
selfish curse distracts bringing shame
dismissing grace that we all should claim.

like scars upon a heart remind
so does bitterness keep us blind,
connection lost because we're scared
dismissing love that could be shared…

like one of us upon this earth
so, Jesus came to show our worth,
sharing life with all of its struggles
dismissing fear caused by our troubles.

like a lamb, upon Him our sins were placed
so, all our guilt and shame could be erased,
removing shadows by true love displayed
dismissing debt through the price that He paid.

like Jesus our Saviour we should all become
marching forever to the beat of His drum,
now death is defeated for in me He lives
dismissing doubt, claiming the favor He gives!
