You Still Came

Before the foundations
You knew
what we would do
and still
what glory
what mercy
to see our
shame
fear
murder
lies
guilt
anger
insanity
sin
and still
made us alive
Alive!
You too, before the foundations
assumed
horrors
terror
suffering
hate
death
sin
You knew
we would
we did
and you still
came.

 

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places, even as he chose us in him before the foundations of the world…And you were dead in the trespasses and sins in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the suns of disobedience–among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the Boyd and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind. But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ–by grace you have been saved–and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus…

Ephesians 1:3-4; 2:1-6
