To Death, and Why?

 “Love you to death”
A quaint little saying
Core to our faith
In Christ’s full obeying
Died for His friends
A horrid blood-letting
Debt fully paid
His Cross, ransom getting
Died for His foes
Though they poured the hate on
Laughed at His lot
Yet some heard the grace song.
What my response
To mercy’s outreaching?
Death to old gods
Society’s preaching
Death to self-love
Now filled with His Spirit
Praising God’s plan
Might all my friends hear it.
