The Sting And The Cross – 1 Corinthians 15:55-57

The Sting And The Cross – 1 Corinthians 15:55-57

And there the sting was lost
There upon the cross
The sting of death
Was finally lost
The sting of sin
Just faded to nothing
There with Christ’s victory
There upon the cross

The Message From The Cross – Luke 23:39-43

The Message From The Cross – Luke 23:39-43

It was the message from the cross
Where one throw insults
Yet the other just said His name
This was His only deed
Though He was guilty in his sin
And the loving Christ accepted him
The one that called our His name
Despite accepting the punishment of his sin
So does it matter what we’ve done
All sin is counted the same
Just call His name
Recognise Him as Lord and saviour
Accept Him in your life
And there is starts again
Reborn with our Lord

Luke 23:39-43

The Traveller – Job 19:8

The Traveller – Job 19:8

The footprints
Of which one should follow
Have disappeared
Into the oncoming darkness
Blue skies
Have slipped away
Ahead now
The mists are falling
To reach, to reach
There is nothing there
What once was held
Has all but gone
Turning around
The fogs surrounding
All routes disappear to nothing
Where is there to turn
Yet upon tired knees
How does one
Find the way home
The enemy’s walls
Slowly enclose
The dark mist
Soon to become
Fiery walls
The tears echo
As they beat the ground
Cries the only sound
Knees to the ground
Head in hands
God of all
Do not forsake this soul
Crying out
Lord, lift this soul
To plains of brightest blue
Where birds will fly
In morning sun
And life rises with the day
Let crying eyes
See yonder hill
Where a cross is set against
Your skies
To see the One
Who gave it all
The One who can set
The traveller free
And through the fog
The cross becomes clear
The blood of sacrifice
Shines through this night
By the breathe of God
The mist falls away
And dark skies turn to blue
The way is clear
To where the cross stands tall
Is the path
The traveller will walk

In Torn Flesh – Isaiah 53:4-5

In Torn Flesh – Isaiah 53:4-5

In torn flesh
Upon the cross
He chose the grave
To save us all
They ripped at His skin
Yet couldn’t break His bones
They tore the flesh
But couldn’t tear His soul
His heart so set
On the children He loved
The shepherd was crushed
For the greater flock
Yet through it all
He prevailed
And rose again
To trample the grave
And by His scars
Our own are healed
He took it all
To heal His people

Isaiah 53:4-5

Righteous King – 1 Peter 3:18

Righteous King – 1 Peter 3:18

What a righteous King
Faithful Son to the end
He took the cup handed to Him
And carried it to the cross
Hung for our sins
The glorious sacrifice
To bring us all before God
Laid to rest
Still He broke wide the grace
To take the sting from death
The spirit came alive
The guide for us all
To lead us all home to our God

1 Peter 3:18

A Voice – Romans 10:8-9

A Voice – Romans 10:8-9

There was a voice
Yet I couldn’t hear
I Felt it’s touch
Feeling it’s warmth
Still I never understood
Ever there in the dark times
Yet I chose to ignore
Right until the darkest
When my ear did turn
It led me from death
Opening my eyes
Taking me on a journey
Where I came upon the Cross
And there on my knees
I called out His name
And that’s when I knew
I truly was saved

Romans 10:8-9

By Gift Of Grace – 1 Peter 2:24

By Gift Of Grace – 1 Peter 2:24

Born to Earth
By gift of grace
Pure of heart
He committed no sin
Still upon Himself
Our sin He bore
Scarred and torn
Upon mercy’s cross
To conquer death
That we may live
By the wounds He bore
We have been healed
Our saviour Christ
Born to Earth
By gift of grace

John 14:6

I am thankful that the veil was torn and we now all able to see the Father through Christ and the Cross.

AT THE CROSS by KUTLESS
Into the darkness came the Light
Oh the Savior lifted high
Through a perfect Sacrifice
My soul has been redeemed

Reaching out Your arms to save
You alone have made a way
My sin has been erased
Forever I will sing

At the cross I am found, I am free
Oh the love You poured out over me
Here I am, may I ever be
At the cross, cuz it’s enough for me

I don’t need another sign
A miracle before my eyes
To believe Your love is mine
Your promise is complete

Jesus You have set me free
Every chain has been released
You are my victory
This truth will never change

At the cross I am found, I am free
Oh the love You poured out over me
Here I have all ill ever need
Oh the cross, it’s enough for me

What You’ve done, it’s enough, all I need
Here I stand, lifted hands, I believe

Weight Of The World – 1 John 2:2

Weight Of The World – 1 John 2:2

The weight of the world
Upon His shoulders
The sins of man
In the cross He carried
The sacrifice of His pure life
The atonement for our sin
Beautifully broken upon the cross
For all the sins of this world
God’s only Son given for us all
It’s the glory of what His great love
Has done for all of us

Until the end He trusted the Father and then gave up His life for us all.  He gave His life that we may receive life, our sins removed, the veil torn so we could see God, the Father’s greatest gift, the glory of His son, Jesus Christ, our saviour.

IT WAS FINISHED by BRYAN & KATIE TORWALT
It was finished
On that day
Death was beaten
All darkness was slain
All His passion
Poured out like the rain upon the earth

Three days buried
They came to mourn
The stone was rolled away
The veil was torn
For He had risen
He is the King of all the earth

Hallelujah
He has conquered death
We cry holy
He reigns in all the earth
Hallelujah
He has conquered death
And He reigns

The room was shaken
The wind of God
Fire from heaven
Descended upon
The Holy Spirit
The power of God
For all the earth

Hallelujah
He has conquered death
We cry holy
He reigns in all the earth
Hallelujah
He has conquered death
And He reigns

Let the angels sing
Holy is our King

Let the angels sing
Holy is our King

Let the angels sing
Holy is our King

Let the angels sing
Holy is our King

Hallelujah
He has conquered death
We cry holy
He reigns in all the earth
Hallelujah
He has conquered death
And He reigns
