Oh to see the dawn

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…

Jesus Christ, I think upon your sacrifice

Jesus Christ, I think upon your sacrifice; you became nothing, poured out to death. Many times I’ve wondered at your gift of life, and I’m in that place once again, I’m in that place once again. And once again I look upon the cross where you died. I’m humbled by…

In Christ Alone

In Christ alone my hope is found; he is my light, my strength, my song. This Cornerstone, this solid Ground, firm through the fiercest drought and storm. What heights of love, what depths of peace when fears are stilled, when strivings cease! My Comforter, my All in All, here in…

At the cross of Jesus

At the cross of Jesus, I would take my place, drawn by such a measure of redeeming grace. Fill my heart with sorrow, lift my eyes to see Jesus Christ my Saviour, crucified for me. At the cross of Jesus, patiently he bore bitter shame and sorrow, grief and anguish…
