It Is Finished

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

I Need to Be Reminded

I need to be reminded of the price you paid for me
When you left your throne in heaven and came to rescue me
I need to be reminded as a baby you arrived
There was no one here to greet you but some shepherds on that night

I need to be reminded of the lessons that you taught
As you walked on this earth as a man and not as God
I need to be reminded of the works that you performed
There were many who believed and many who would harm

I need to be reminded of the price you paid for me
When you suffered and died that day on Calvary
I need to be reminded of the suffering and the pain
As they beat you and bruised you again and again

I need to be reminded that you rose again that day
Up from the grave to open heavens gates
I need to be reminded that you reign eternally
I know there is a mansion up in heaven just for me

I need to be reminded that your story has been told
In the Bible it was written by men so long ago
I need to be reminded to spend my time each day
In the pages of your book where your words are there to stay

I need to be reminded that my life is in your hands
That you care for me and hope for me to walk in your great plan
I need to be reminded to spend time in prayer each day
And to lift my eyes to heaven and give you all my praise

He Did It All For Me

I am so glad He was born for me. 
In a manger where almost no one could see. 
He was born with great humility. 
And He did it all for me

I am so glad that he lived for me. 
Teaching the way that I should be. 
Miracles that everyone could see. 
And he did it all for me

I am so glad that he suffered for me. 
Took the stripes on his back and the nails in his feet. 
Made the devil go down in eternal defeat. 
And He did it all for me

I am so glad that he died for me 
and then rose again to victory 
now all live with him eternally.
He did it all for me

His mercy and grace are more than enough. 
His atoning death was what brought him to us. 
And now we are free from the curse of the cross. 
Because He did it all for me.

So, rise up and shout in victory. 
Give him the praise and the glory. 
And tell everyone you know eternal story 
Of how he did it all for me
