John Piper: God Answers

By on January 13, 2013 in Faith with No Comments

John Piper while on sabbatical in Knoxville, TN he wrote a poem entitled “God Answers.”

Is there a word to help us feel
the weight of Adam’s fall?
How heavy will this burden weigh,
(Spare not!) on those who fell?
O Lord, so great this forfeiture!
Was there sufficient reason?
Then whence could any traitor hope
before your burning face?
But surely that will cost beyond
our wage. How is it priced?
Entirely paid? By him? O God,
and is that gift for me?
I would receive this gift, O Lord!
How soon would you allow?

HT: Timmy Brister
