My Jesus, I love You

for loving me.
I praise You
for living free of sin,
despite more temptations
than most men must endure.

On the cross You could
have turned the wood
back into the tree
knowing good and evil,
but You chose to be
the Final Offering,
the Last Sacrifice, The
Tree of Life turned
toward all of us to love.
