When I Think About the Cross

When I think about the cross I think about His blood
Shed for you and me to show us His great love
His blood has cleansed our sins whiter than the snow
His blood has given us our freedom from the hell below

When I think about the cross I think about the scars
They beat Him leaving stripes upon His back and arms
They drove spikes through His hands and feet to hold Him there
They pierced His dying side with a Roman soldiers spear

When I think about the cross I think about the thorns
The cruel crown of pain was given out if scorn
The pricks into His scalp brought drops of blood and sweat
The parted His own garment as they placed their bets

When I think about the cross I think about His pain
He faced more agony than I will ever understand
The fact he did it willingly is such a mystery
Why would the Son of God give up His life for me

When I think about the cross I think about His words
He asked God to forgive us down through time the message heard
He said that it is finished salvation’s plan complete
He died a cruel death and threw Satan to defeat

When I think about the cross I think about the grave
They sealed Him up inside so that he could not escape
Yet on that third day the stone was rolled away
He rose up from the dead and defeated death that day

When I think about the cross I think about His love
He came to earth to die from His throne above
God loved us all so much he gave His only Son
He died and rose again and calls to everyone

Come see what God has done to redeem you from your sin
Come see what God has done to make you whole again
Come see what God has done to give eternal life
Will you accept His death as your redeeming sacrifice?

His Presence is Mine

There He was standing before me
With arms that were opened wide
I ran to feel Him embrace me
Then I stayed there right by His side

I felt His sweet peace overtake me
I breathed an aroma of joy
My heart leapt inside with a shudder
As His love swept right into my soul

What a redeemer He is
What a Savior divine
He set me free
From sins dread disease
Forever His presence is mine

As I stayed there in His embrace
Each moment I felt reassured
Forever His love would be with me
And the hope He gives will endure

What a redeemer He is
What a Savior divine
He set me free
From sins dread disease
Forever His presence is mine

He bore my sins
He cleansed me white as snow
He filled my spirit and now I know
Forever I’ll be
Safe in His loving arms
Oh what a Savior divine

What a redeemer He is
What a Savior divine
He set me free
From sins dread disease
Forever His presence is mine

For Me

This one thing I know.
Jesus loves me so
Died upon a tree
Just to set me free
Shed His precious blood
Just to show His love 
For me

 

I will give my life
All to Jesus Christ
His I’ll always be
For He’s done so much 
For me

 

How incredible
How amazing
How extraordinary is His love
I’m undeserving
Such a sinner
Yet His mercy reaches out to me
Great compassion 
Down from heaven
Grace will always be enough

For me

 

One more thing I know

One day I will go

Up into the air

He will meet me there

Never more to roam

He’s prepared a home

For me

 

How incredible
How amazing
How extraordinary is His love
I’m undeserving
Such a sinner
Yet His mercy reaches out to me
Great compassion 
Down from heaven
Grace will always be enough

For me

Avoiding The Fire

I have to admit, I’m a sinner

I’ll never be perfect down here

Try hard as I can

I never will stand

As a sinless man, that’s for sure

 

But I made a choice long ago

To avoid being scorched for all time

I asked Jesus in

And He covered my sin

Now heavens my home for all time

 

I am sure that you don’t intend

To burn in hell when your life ends

Why not ask Him today

To take your sins away

And you can have peace in the end

Yep, He Was Real

We’ve all heard stories from long ago

About people and creatures that just weren’t so

These made up tales

Were told to regale

And through time some believed what they told

 

But to say that Jesus was mythical

Is truly quite unethical

There’s plenty of proof

To make it a truth

That Jesus was real and methodical

 

He came to this earth as a sacrifice

And He lived to offer up His life

His blood set us free

From sins dread diisease

And He rose to give life for all time

No Filter Now!

I’ve always enjoyed a cup of coffee

When I rise up in the morn

It used to be I would percolate it

But now Mr Coffee’s the norm

 

I used to percolate things of God

I’d filter out what I opposed

That left me wondering if God was real

Or if he was just a big hoax

 

But then I met Jesus one fateful day

And my whole attitude was changed

Now I take in the whole word of God

And I’ll never be the same

I Was A Righteous Dude!

I used to be called righteous

Because I was really cool

I was oft called a righteous dude

As I walked through my school

But then I learned my righteousness

Was filthy rags so gross

So I gave my life to Jesus

And He washed me white as snow

Now I walk each day with Jesus

He calls me His son

And He gives me His righteousness

I’m so glad I  found His love
