Good Friday

the wonderful cross

when i survey the wondrous cross
on which the Prince of Glory died
my richest gain i count but loss
and pour contempt on all my pride

see from His head, His hands, His feet
sorrow and love flow mingled down
did ever such love and sorrow meet
or thorns compose so rich a crown

oh the wonderful cross, oh the wonderful cross
bids me come and die and find that i may truly live
oh the wonderful cross, oh the wonderful cross
all who gather here by grace draw near and bless Your name

were the whole realm of nature mine
that were an offering far too small
love so amazing, so divine
demands my soul, my life, my all

love so amazing, so divine
demands my soul, my life, my all

    Easter Blessings to you Kristen!

    “Receive every day as a resurrection from death, as a new enjoyment of life; meet every rising sun with such sentiments of God’s goodness, as if you had seen it, and all things, new – created upon your account: and under the sense of so great a blessing” – William Law
