Jesus Life

Come to the Wonderful Cross

If you need healing
If you need peace
If you need joy
Come

If you need deliverance
Freedom or hope
Come to the wonderful cross

Come to the cross
The wonderful cross
Where Jesus suffered and died
He took our sins
Our worries and fears
All on that wonderful cross

If you need faith
Forgiveness and life
Come to the wonderful cross

He gave His all
So we could have all
He gave His life
A great sacrifice
He gave His body
A ransom for all
Come to the wonderful cross

Come to the cross
The wonderful cross
Where Jesus suffered and died
He took our sins
Our worries and fears
All on that wonderful cross

 

The Back of the Cross

Oh what a glorious day
My sin stains are washed away
He has risen from the grave
Oh what a glorious day’

When I think of what He has done for me
To go through that pain and agony
So that I could truly be set free
Oh what a glorious day

My friend it is simple and so complete
The price that He paid for you and me
When we go through the cross it’s easy to see
That this is a glorious day

On the front of the cross is agony
On the back of the cross is peace
On the front of the cross is sorrow
On the back of the cross is joy
On the front of the cross is pain
On the back of the cross is healing
On the front of the cross is bondage
On the back of the cross is freedom
On the front of the cross is sin
On the back of the cross is forgiveness
On the front of the cross we are stained with sin
On the back of the cross we are white as snow
On the front of the cross is defeat
On the back of the cross is victory
On the front of the cross is death
On the back of the cross is eternal life
If we stay on the front of the cross, hell will be our destination
When we go through the cross, and come to the back, our destination is heaven

Come through the cross today
Ask Jesus your life to save
For you His life He gave
Oh what a glorious day

 

At the Foot of the Cross

I wrote this song several years ago but don;t think I ever posted it here. This is a good time to do that!

At the foot of the cross, the blood drips down
From the nails in his feet and the thorns in his brow
A crimson pool gathers there on the ground
At the foot of the cross.

CHORUS
There is forgiveness at the foot of the cross
Mercy unending, at such a great cost
Grace everlasting, eternal and free
At the foot of the cross

At the foot of the cross, my tears pour out
I am free from my fear, free from my doubt
I found a Savior to turn me about
At the foot of the cross

CHORUS

At the foot of the cross, I now kneel in prayer
To my wonderful savior, who died for me there
He has risen to Heaven, and will soon take me there
From the foot of the cross.

CHORUS

REFRAIN
Grace everlasting, eternal and free
At the foot of the cross. At the foot of the cross

 

Look to the Cross

Look to the cross
The wonderful cross
Where sin was defeated once and for all
Look to the cross
The wonderful cross
Where Christians bow down and answer the call

Look to the cross
The wonderful cross
Where by His stripes my healing is sure
Look to the cross
The wonderful cross
Where my redemption His blood has secured

Jesus my Savior
Jesus my Lord
You gave your life
What a wonder you are
I cannot fathom
The pain you endured
You loved me so much
Jesus my Lord

Look to the cross
The wonderful cross
Where He gave His life and died in my place
Look to the cross
The wonderful cross
Where He is no more He has risen today

Jesus my Savior
Jesus my Lord
You gave your life
What a wonder you are
I cannot fathom
The pain you endured
You loved me so much
Jesus my Lord

Overturned

Crowds swarmed the street
All classes
Men and women
Young and old
Even the religious leaders
Pious and curious
He was coming
Just a few days earlier
He had raised Lazarus from the dead
Many had witnessed it
Many spread the story
He was coming
Coming to Jerusalem
They thought Him to be King
They sought to crown Him
They ran before Him
Spreading palm branches
Shouting Hosanna
Shouting Blessed is He
Praising
Worshiping
The King is coming
What a glorious day

The Pharisees and Scribes looked on
They wondered at the sight
It troubled them
He troubled them
His words troubled them
The people worshiping troubled Him
They indeed were troubled
They said quiet the crowd
Tell them you should not be worshiped
But He looked them in the eye
His stern face looked through them
If they did not praise me
The very rocks would cry out Hosanna
The people cheered
The leaders jeered
This had to stop
This had to stop

The day wore on
The night came and went
A new dawn would see a new day
The leaders hoped he would be quiet
But soon they would see
He would not be silent
The marketplace was busy
Many had come to see him
Many others there for Passover
They needed a sacrifice
They had come to see Jesus
Unprepared for their Passover offering
Without a perfect lamb
Without a pigeon or two
They had to buy from the merchants
The crooked merchants
Who had unjust weights
And resold lambs over and over
It was profitable for them
It was sin to God
Right inside the gates of the temple
Absurd and astounding
That the religious leaders looked away
Because they got their take
Quite a sham
Out of what was to be holy

Jesus walked in
He knew their ways
He knew their deceit
He knew how they cheated the people
He knew of their unjust weights
He had been here before
He had turned over their tables
Money flew everywhere
Lambs ran wild
Pigeons flew away
As Jesus cleaned up their sinful ways
When they saw Him
Saw the look in His eyes
As He looked out over the market that day
They were worried
Concerned for their profit
Some for their lives
They remembered what He had done before
They started picking up their wares
Too late
Too slow

He grabbed one table
Flipped it on end
Reached over and unblocked the gate
Opened the cage
Chaos erupted
As He continued through the marketplace
Lambs and pigeons everywhere
Money flying off the tables
Scattering on the ground
People scrambling to pick it up
My house is to be a house of prayer He said
But you have made it a den of thieves
The people hailed Him
Loved Him
Adored Him
The Pharisees and scribes watched
They were livid
How dare He
How could He do this again
They were ready now
Ready to capture Him
Ready to put Him to death
Ready to gain the victory
Over this Jesus

What about you
Do you need sin overturned in your life
Has your life become full of lies
Is their iniquity that needs cleansed
Jesus wants to overturn your tables
He wants to cleanse your life
He wants you holy and pure
A living sacrifice
Devoted to Him
Are you willing
Are you ready
Let Him overturn your life today

What Love He Has For Me

I am often just amazed
At the love He has for me
When I didn’t even know Him
He died to rescue me

What love He has for me
What amazing grace I see
The Lord above
Showed me His love
When He died to set me free

I was dying in my sin
There was no way I could win
When He found me in distress
Washed me from deep down within

What love He has for me
What amazing grace I see
The Lord above
Showed me His love
When He died to set me free

Now I look at that old cross
Just amazed at what He did
For He gave His life for me
Now I’m forever His

What love He has for me
What amazing grace I see
The Lord above
Showed me His love
When He died to set me free

Fill Every Pore

God so loved the world
That He gave His only Son
That all who would believe would have new life
He called to me one day
That I would share His ways
And tell all men of His great sacrifice

Truly my desire
Is that I would be on fire
With a passion for the lost
Give my life at any cost
Just to see a soul get rescued
From their sin

Fill my mouth with truth, Lord
Fill my heart with love
May compassion for the lost fill every pore
Fill me with your Spirit
Guide me to the lost
That I might share your word with all my soul

All my heart cries out
That my words turn them about
So that they would see their sin
Then their spirit groan within
Causing them to cry to Jesus
Save me Lord

Fill my mouth with truth, Lord
Fill my heart with love
May compassion for the lost fill every pore
Fill me with your Spirit
Guide me to the lost
That I might share your word with all my soul
