Abba Father, a Poem

Abba Father, A Poem

I may boldly call you Abba Father
As a privilege given through Jesus' name;
I who used to belong to another
Both adoption and son-ship I may clam.

His blood freed me from my sin and my guilt,
Now through the Lamb of God I shall draw near;
Where because of former sin I would wilt
Now approach without judgment or fear.

I chose a wasteland over your garden,
But you searched for me out of your pure love.
Gave a father's kiss, and a kings pardon;
Then welcomed me to bright mansions above.

The constraint of justice is satisfied,
Not one charge against me shall ever stand;
Because of the wounds of one that had died
My life is held secure by Abba's hand.

Now before man and angles I declare
How Abba my God and king I adore.
I offer my service to him so fair,
and love him, my Father, forevermore.

(c) Adron Dozat

Footnote. The term "Abba" is the Aramaic name of endearment for a father it's the same as saying Daddy or Papa. Jesus used this term in his high priestly prayer in the Gospel of John chapter 17.
