I found myself kneeling before His cross I could not explain how I felt Tears of deep sorrow flowed from my eyes Dripping down in the blood where I knelt I looked up to see my Savior so dear His body all beaten and red I cried our "Dear Lord what shall I do" And He looked down at me and said It is finished your redemption is paid It is finished your sin Is erased Don't be sad, do not weep Keep your heart. Keep my peace In three days all the world will see It is finished I stood up and started to praise him As He gave up a sorrowful sigh Then His head bowed and life just left Him I now knew my Savior had died As I went to my home, I remembered the words That He spoke to me from His cross Then I fasted and prayed for those few days Hoping soon I'd get over this loss Then I heard great commotion outside in the street Someone running and yelling real loud He's Alive the kept saying Over and over He's alive. He's alive. He's alive It is finished the battle is over It is finished the victory mine Jesus has conquered the grave and death It is finished and He is alive
High above the mountains High above the sea High above all nature He reigns in Majesty High above the creation High above all men High above the heavens He reigns for all to see His glory fills the skies above His glory fills my soul His glory all around us For all men to behold I can’t deny His goodness I can’t deny His grace I can’t deny His mercy I long to see His face Majestic is the Lamb Who sits upon the throne Forever we will worship Him Jesus Christy our Lord
When I think of the pain you bore And all that you’ve done for me I can’t help but kneel at the foot of the cross And thank you for setting me free I was lost and drifting through life Like a ship without a sail You found me when I was dep in distress And you covered me with your grace I do not deserve this great mercy As your love hears my desperate plea I sit here in awe that such a great God Would take time to rescue me So now I will sing Thank you Jesus For the price that you paid in the cross I will tell all the world of your goodness And the change in my life you have caused For I was the chiefest of sinners Now peace and joy reign in my heart Thank you, dear Lord, for rescuing me By leading me straight to the cross
As gentle as a Lamb To the slaughter He was led He did not say a word As the blood flowed from His head The cruelty they showed Him He took with tender grace The agone He suffered He endured to take my place I deserved the cross yet He took it all for me I deserved the stripes that He took to set me free I deserved the nails that pierced His feet and hands I deserved the cross that Jesus bore for me With the power of a lion He rose up from the dead Victory was in His hand A crown upon His head Not the crown of thorns they gave Him But a royal crown of gold Now He rules all of heaven All of earth and all below I deserved the cross yet He took it all for me I deserved the stripes that He took to set me free I deserved the nails that pierced His feet and hands I deserved the cross that Jesus bore for me He died to take my sin He rose to give me life Hallelujah, He has risen Hallelujah He’s alive I deserved the cross yet He took it all for me I deserved the stripes that He took to set me free I deserved the nails that pierced His feet and hands I deserved the cross that Jesus bore for me
He paved the way to heaven With blood and sweat and tears He paid for all my sin And dispelled all of my fears Now he waits there for me And will come to get me soon I’m waiting for His coming And to hear that trumpet tune Glorious day What a glorious day that will be Glorious day When He comes back for me The trumpet will announce Him The clouds will part before And then I will forever Be in heaven with my Lord
I looked at the cross and what did I see But Jesus my Lord looking down at me His body was bloody and filled with pain Then I heard Him say "I will rise again" This cross is simply a means to an end Soon I will die and this pain will end They will put my body in a borrowed grave It will seem like all hope had been erased A stone will be rolled across the door Guards will be placed to make it secure I will be busy behind the scenes Leaving this grave to take back the keys I'll enter the realm of the devil himself And demand that he give me the keys he has held These keys give release from hell and the grave So that all who had loved me now will be raised Then I will roll the stone from the grave The guards will be stunned and will fall down in place I will rise victorious over death and the grave And you will be granted new life in my name A life filled with hope and joy and peace A life where my mercy and grace never cease Don't worry my child, do not be afraid This cross that I bear brings a victory so great
The cross stood there before you Ready to take your life You were beaten, mocked and tortured As the crowd cried crucify They led you up a mountain Exhausted you complied Then they laid you on that cross To suffer, bleed and die Nails were swiftly driven Through your wrists and feet They raised the cross up high So that all the world could see All through that agony and pain You never said a word No slight complaint or whisper Did you utter in return Just a few hours later It is finished you cried out In that moment all of heaven Let out a painful shout The Son of God had given up His life for you and me Heaven’s Lamb, the King of Glory Gave sin it’s last defeat They laid Him in a borrowed tomb A stone was put in place Yet in three days it rolled away From death to life, He raised He raised my hope for heaven He raised my peace from pain He raised my joy from sorrow He gave me life again Oh, what a precious Savior Is Jesus Christ my Lord Forever I will praise Him For the cross for me He bore
What is it that makes me love Him so? Is it the joy in my heart or the peace in my soul? Or is it the fact that He gave up His life To die on a cross so long ago What is it that causes my heart to sing? Is it the pain that He heals or the faith that He brings? Or is it the fact that He rose up again Giving hope amidst everything What is it that makes my praise to arise? Is it all that He taught just to open my eyes? Or is it that He will one day return And meet me way up in the sky Whatever it is that causes these things I hope that they always remain My love and my song and the praise that I bring Will always be full of amens Amen that He came from His heavenly throne Amen that He made a manger His home Amen that He healed everyone that He touched Amen that He taught us that He was enough Amen that He suffered and died for my sin Amen that He gave me new life within Amen that He rose up alive from the grave Amen that He promised me heaven one day All these amens and so many more Are due to the one that I so adore My praise and my worship never will cease ‘Til I rest in His arms and my life is complete
I feast on the bread of this world Instead of the bread of Life I drink from my cup and my glass Instead of the Living Water I wake up to cares of this world Rather then thoughts for your word I’m not sure what I’m searching for But I know what I need from my Father I need a deeper desire to learn A deeper desire to pray A deeper desire to walk with you A deeper desire to praise Make it so, Lord Make it so today Let not another day go by That I do not walk in your way Fill me with your grace and mercy Help me give it out to the world Make it so, Lord. Make it so Make it so today.
Once upon a time there was a garden Where everything was good and right for all God set down.one rule for man to follow In order to stay pure and never fall Once upon a time there was a serpent Who tempted man to break the rule God made Man tasted of the fruit that was forbidden And on the day he fell from God's good grace Once upon a time there was a baby Who truly came from God to make things right He grew in wisdom and He taught the masses What it means to walk in holy light Once upon a time the priests were angry And they arranged to put this man to death The did not realize they were fulfilling The prophecies of old that they had read Once upon a time they bruised and beat Him They hung Him on a cross until He died But then the third day came with big surprises The tomb was empty and He was alive Once upon a time this man named Jesus Redeemed us all from all our sin and shame He took the stripes to heal our broken bodies And renewed our Covenant with God again I know this poem reads quite like a fable And sounds like it is to good to be true But I assure you now it really happened That the Son of God came down to earth for you He came to show us how much He does love us He came to being new life to everyone Today won't you please give your life to Jesus And you will know the victory is won.
