Redemption

My Lord Jesus, you said
     to save my life I must lose it
    so that what is lost may be found in you alone.
For you showed me how this is done
     and taught me why you did so
    so that I may live in the freedom of your love.
You suffered for my love
     acquiesced to suffering for my sin by dying on the Cross 
    so to return to God the Father those who were lost.
That I may be redeemed in your suffering
     may I lose my life to you
    so to be found in you alone.
