For I Sent My Son

"I am the LORD your God, you shall have no other gods before Me..."
For I sent My Son the good King, so from the world you may be free;
"Do not make a sculpted image or likeness of what is in the heavens above..."
For I sent My Son as a humble servant, the greatest expression of love.

"Thou shalt not swear falsely by using the name of the LORD in vain..."
For I sent My Son to be a living sacrifice, to remove sin's crimson stain;
"Remember the Sabbath day and keep it holy," for on that day I did take rest...
For I sent My Son to share your burden, take up His yoke and become blest.

"Thou shalt honor your father and mother," do not give them any strife...
For I sent My Son to be their guide, and give you a more abundant life;
"Thou shalt not murder," for to take a life wrongly is a grievous offense...
For I sent My Son the Advocate, whom shall provide for all a defense.

"Thou shalt not commit adultery," to find console in another person's bed...
For I sent My Son the Comforter, and by His Word you shall be fed;
"Thou shalt not steal," taking from another that rightfully is not your own...
For I sent My Son to be your treasure, when trading your cross at the throne.

"Thou shalt not bear false witness against your neighbor," thus to cast doubt...
For I sent My Son to be judgement, and know that He shall call the truth out;
"Thou shalt not covet your neighbor's house, or anything to him that belongs..."
For I sent My Son to be the Savior, to die once to correct all your wrongs..
