Victory by Death

He was beaten, bruised and torn
His body tired and worn
Yet he did not speak a word in His defense
A crown of thorns upon His head
His forehead slowly bled
Then pain and agony was quite intense

Then they placed a robe upon Him
With a scepter in His hands
The guard knelt down and mocked Him as a King
Little did they know their words
Were true through all of time
Because He was indeed the King of Kings

The cross was laid upon His back
He fell beneath its weight
His weak and bloody body just gave out
They led Him to Golgotha
They nailed Him to the cross
Forgive them was His final living shout

They thought they had the victory
But soon they would find out
That what they did would touch all of mankind
Three days He laid a dead man
But then He rose again
The victory over life and death complete

He brought us victory that day
He showed us His amazing grace
By dying and then rising up again
Now we should live for Him
His Word deep down within
For soon He will be coming back again

To Die For Us

What a light
What a light so bright
Came down to us
To die for us

What a child
What a lowly child
Came down to us
To die for us

King of glory
Lord of all things
We come now to bow before you
God of wonder
Radiant splendor
You have given us your son

What a day
He went to the grave
Three days later He arose
He came to save us

King of glory
Lord of all things
We come now to bow before you
God of wonder
Radiant splendor
You have given us your son

To redeem us
To restore us
To return us back to you

King of glory
Lord of all things
We come now to bow before you
God of wonder
Radiant splendor
You have given us your son

Christmas Poetry

I Believe

I did not see the star that shone above so bright
I did not hear the innkeeper say there’s no room tonight
I did not see the shepherds or the wise men by His side
It’s written in His book so I believe

I did not hear Him teaching His gracious words of life
I did not see Him healing those who came to Him in strife
I did not seethe demons as they heard Him and took flight
It’s written in His book so I believe

CHORUS
I believe
I believe
With the faith that I was born with I believe
Though all may try to stop me
And take this faith from me
With all that is within me
I believe

I did not hear the crowds as they cried out crucify
I did not see Him hung with two thieves by His side
I did not hear Him fry out it is finished when he die
It’s written in the book so I believe

CHORUS

They laid Him in a tomb and sealed it with a stone
They guarded Him in death thinking He was all alone
But the grave could not hold Him
The stone could not contain Him
He rose up from the dead
I believe
I believe

CHORUS

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
