-No Place To Stand

No Place To Stand

“You will cast all our sins into the depths of the sea.” – Micah 7:19

Psalm 69:2

Jesus could walk on the turbulent waters;
Even the seas would obey His command;

But when He passed through the waters of judgment
There was no place for our Savior to stand.
Psalm 107:23-31

He is the One who went down to the ocean;
Drifting alone where the great surges roll;

Sinking in shame because of their raging,
Bearing our sins as they battered His soul.
Psalm 22:13

Wave after wave of the blackness of darkness
Broke over Him as the bearer of sin;

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
Entered His soul like a storm on the sea.

“Deep calls to deep at the roar of their tumult,
All of Your billows have gone over Me.”
Jonah 2:26

We cannot fathom the depths of the anguish
Jesus endured as God dealt with Him there;

But we adore Him for all that He suffered,
Dying to save us from endless despair.
