God could have reconciled mankind to himself by a thought
but he chose to do it by giving us infinite value.
To redeem me he chose to give away his Only Begotten.
Oh Infinite, the value he places on me.
He gave away His own Son to purchase me!
I am the God Ransomed!
We are Divinely bought,
The Human Race, from our beginning to our end has today Infinite value.
Each infant, each drunk, each mother,
each murderer, each rapist, each hater,
each mad beggar, each boring fool, each oaf, each lout.
Each is of Infinite value, more precious even than the only Son of God.
Each dearly bought by iron nail and wood, blood and spittle, torn flesh and tormented Deity
There is no cheap, worthless humanity under the the shadow of the Cross,
or in the Divine Heart...
... nor in the true Christian heart.
