My Life is

my life is forfeit
it is not i who live
but You in me.
who am i, that i should gain
from Your reward?
yet You say "child,"
and i question, “afford?”
you were sold for nothing
you will be redeemed without money
and can i ask this? no. it is You.
You ask me, You asked first, You.
You thought, and it was made.
You moved, things changed.
You felt, the world melted.
You breathed and You made me.
my life is forfeit,
you see,
i’m not like
other men
  i am dead
   i live.
