If He Loves Me

If He loves me why do I suffer
If He loves me why do I hurt
If He loves me why do the trials of my life bring trouble at every turn
If He loves me why do I tremble
at what the next day will bring
If He loves me when will He come to my side and remove all the things that sting
 
Isn’t it enough that He died for me to take away my sins?
Isn’t it enough that the comforter comes to settle your heart within?
All that this life will throw at you will never compare to His love
So when trials and tests try to steal all your rest
Come to Jesus for He is enough
 
His love is always there.  It is always a comfort, always a resting place when trouble comes.  We don’t have to wonder if he loves us if we will just look at the cross.  Look at what he went through for you.  Look at how much He suffered because he loves you.  There is no pain greater than the pain of His heart breaking when the Father turned His head and darkness covered the sky.  He had never been separated from His Father, not for all eternity past.  And yet for three hours, He was covered with sin, and the Father could not look.  That is how much Jesus loves you and me.
 
When trouble surround you and it seems that a temptation is too hard to bear, get that picture of the cross in your mind.  Think about Jesus on that cross.  In your minds eye look at the blood dripping down from His brow.  Look at the tears in His flesh.  Look at the nails in His feet and hands.  Look at His love poured out.  This is the image that will get you through your tests and trials.  He loved you so much that he stretched out His hands and died for you.  Isn’t that enough?  Does He really need to do any more for you to show you His love?
 
John 3:16
For God so loved the world that he gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believed in Him would have everlasting life.
 

He Did It All For Me

As I approached the cross
I could hardly look
At the body that was Christ
At the agony he bore
Tears welled up in my eyes
As I saw the crown of thorns
He took it all for me
 
I saw the stripes they gave’
Wrapped around His frame
I saw the nails they drove
Into His feet and hands
I saw the blood run down
How could he even talk
He did it all for me
 
I saw Him grasp for breath
Just enough to breathe
But suddenly He spoke
Words that pierced the air
Father forgive them
They know not what they do
With those words He forgave me and you
 
Forgiven.  I’m forgiven
I’m set free from guilt and shame
Forgiven.  I’m forgiven
I’m set free and I’ll praise His name
Jesus Christ my victory
He did it all for me
He did it all for you
He did it all for all.

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

The Wondrous Gift

A brand new Christmas song. Words and video are here.

Oh, to see the light the shines in the darkness
Oh, to see the place where my Lord was born
Oh, to hear the angels sing their praises
On that blessed Christmas morn

Oh, to hear the baby cry in the manger
Oh, to see how Mary loved Him so
Oh, to see how Joseph held Him closely
On that blessed Christmas morn

CHORUS
I wish that I had been there
I wish that I had seen
The wondrous gift was given
For all the world to see
But He said it is greater
That I would still believe
For though I was not there that day
He came to die for me

Oh, I want to turn my face from His suff’ring
Oh, I want to turn my face from His pain
Oh, I want to hear Him cry forgive them
Oh, I want to see Him rise again
Oh, I want to see Him rise again

On that blessed Christmas born
The Son of God was born
To take away our sins
To make us free within
What a wondrous gift
What a wondrous gift
What a wondrous gift God gave

CHORUS

 

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

 

What Can I Do But Praise You

It will never be enough
No matter what I do
To pay you back for what you’ve done for me
I can’t even count the cost
That you redeemed that day
When you gave your life away at Calvary

Bruised and beaten crowned with thorns
Nails put in your feet and hands
You suffered for my sins upon that tree
Then you rose up from the grave
Forever you will be with me
Oh what wondrous love you have shown to me

What can I do but praise you
What can I do but worship your sweet name
Hallelujah
What can I do but thank you
For all the blessings you have given me
Hallelujah

You are my Lord forever
You are my friend forever
You are my King forever
Bless your holy name
Bless your holy name

What can I do but praise you
What can I do but worship your sweet name
Hallelujah
What can I do but thank you
For all the blessings you have given me
Hallelujah
