For the Cross | Brian & Jenn Johnson

On this Good Friday I am again dumbfounded by the outrageous love of God. Who would willingly leave His throne and do such a thing? Or this Father who would gladly bankrupt heaven, giving what was most precious to Him, so that He could be with us forever? So that He could call us His sons and daughters? What astounding love! What scandalous grace!

Words cannot adequately describe what I’m feeling right now. All I do is fall at His feet and worship…all I can say is thank You, thank You, thank You for the Cross!

So I will let this song sung by Brian & Jenn Johnson express what’s in my heart.

Have a very blessed Resurrection weekend. Remember that you are dearly loved by the Maker of heaven and earth who became one of us so that we could be one with Him.

Blessings,
Mel

For the Cross

The life You gave
Your body was broken
Your love poured out
You bled and You died for me
There on the cross
You breathed Your last as you were crucified
You gave it all for me

Hallelujah, what a Savior
Hallelujah, what a friend
Hallelujah, King forever
We thank You for the cross

There in the ground
Sealed in the darkness
Lifeless laid
The frame of the Father’s son
In agony
He watched His only be sacrificed
He gave it all for me

But on that day
What seemed as the darkest hour
A violent hope
Broke through and shook the ground
And as You rose
The Light of all the world was magnified
And You rose in victory

Hallelujah, it is finished
Hallelujah, it is done
Hallelujah, King forever
We thank you for the cross

Though our sins are scarlet
You have made us white as snow
