“You will cast all our sins into the depths of the sea.” – Micah 7:19
Jesus could walk on the turbulent waters;
But when He passed through the waters of judgment
There was no place for our Savior to stand.
He is the One who went down to the ocean;
Sinking in shame because of their raging,
Bearing our sins as they battered His soul.
Wave after wave of the blackness of darkness
He was forsaken by God on the altar,
Though He was sinless and holy within.
Psalm 69:1; Psalm 42:7
“Save Me, O God,” He cried as the waters
“Deep calls to deep at the roar of their tumult,
All of Your billows have gone over Me.”
We cannot fathom the depths of the anguish
But we adore Him for all that He suffered,
Dying to save us from endless despair.
