Easter thoughts...

I was blog hopping this morning, and noticed Gillian had put the words of a different Stuart Townend song on her blog, it reminded me of one of my favourite songs at the moment...

Although Easter can be "fluffed" away with all the bunnies, eggs, chocolate etc, it is a really special time for me as a christian to remember the amazing sacrifice of Christ for me and my sins. May the reallity of God's precious gift of his "Only, begotten Son" impact my life more fully.

Oh, to see the dawn,
Of the darkest day:
Christ on the road to Calvary.
Tried by sinful men,
Torn and beaten, then,
Nailed to a cross of wood.

This, the power of the cross:
Christ became sin for us.
Took the blame, bore the wrath--
We stand forgiven at the cross.

Oh, to see the pain,
Written on Your face,
Bearing the awesome weight of sin.
Every bitter thought,
Every evil deed,
Crowning Your bloodstained brow.

This, the power of the cross:
Son of God - slain for us.
What a love! What a cost!
We stand forgiven at the cross.

Now the daylight flees,
Now the ground beneath,
Quakes as its Maker bows His head.
Curtain torn in two,
Dead are raised to life;
'Finished!' the victory cry.

Oh, to see my name,
Written in the wounds,
For through Your suffering I am free.
Death is crushed to death,
Life is mine to live,
Won through Your selfless love.

Keith Getty & Stuart Townend
