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.
He breaks me down, so he can build me up. He pours me out so he can fill my cup He dries me out so I will thirst for him. He wears me down to lift me up again His desire is to reach into my heart take the old man out and make me new His desire is to empty me of me And fill me up with everything brand new He uses trials in my life to show me I am weak He uses every circumstance to build my faith When I give my life to him and fully trust his grace I will see his mercy working every day He builds me up whenever I break down. He fills my cup when I have been poured out He satisfies the thirsting of my soul. He lifts me up when life has got me down His desire is to put his hope in me, Drive away my doubt, and lift my faith His desire is to fill me with his joy And overwhelming peace every day He uses trials in my life to show me I am weak He uses every circumstance to build my faith When I give my life to him and fully trust his grace I will see his mercy working every day I will see his mercy working, And in faith I will be trusting That his grace will give me hope every day I will see his mercy working, And in faith I will be trusting That his grace will give me hope every day
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.
I look in the mirror and what do I see But my old soul looking back at me Decrepit and sinful as I can be I need someone to set me free Free from the burden I carry each day Free from the trials that get in my way Free from the hurt, the sorrow, the shame Free from a life that has lost its way What will it take to restore my soul? Who can redeem me and make me whole? Who can make new something so old? Who can make free that which sin controls? I pick up a book that I never have read I read of a man who came back from the dead He promised he'd give me a new life ahead If I'd just believe and from my sin repent I fall on my knees and lift up my voice I make up my mind and I make a new choice No longer will I live without any joy I will follow Jesus and make Him my Lord I look in the mirror and what do I see But a soul that is saved and from sin set free A new life was born when He heard my plea What a great Savior is Jesus to me
In the still of the night hear the bullfrogs As they fill the night air with their cries They sit by the side of their dwelling Daring someone to catch them alive In the still of the night see the stars shine Looking upward their glory I see The light that they give travels onward My wonder it will never cease In the still of the night feel the cool breeze As it whisks away all of the heat I look forward to that brisk feeling From the top of my head to my feet In the still of the night God is speaking Through the sounds, sights and feelings I have There is no mistaking His presence As I take in the cool night air I hope that he always comes calling As I walk by the wayside each day If I open my ears and I listen I the still of the night He is there
