With Easter upon us, I thought it would be good to post the lyrics of a song about the Cross. This particular song is very moving and thoughtful, as it focuses on Jesus’ suffering for each of us personally \”” He died on our cross.
The song is by the group that also gave us another great song about the cross: “Still the Cross”. If you click on that link, you will see my post about that equally good song.
May you be blessed by the message of this song.
On My Cross
By Jeromy Diebler
How wide is Your love
That You would stretch Your arms
And go around the world
And why for me would a Savior’s cry be heard
I don’t know
Why You went where I was meant to go
I don’t know
Why You love me so
Those were my nails
That was my crown
That pierced Your hands and Your brow
Those were my thorns
Those were my scorns
Those were my tears that fell down
And just as You said it would be
You did it all for me
After You counted the cost
You took my shame, my blame
On my cross
How deep is Your grace
That you could see my need
And chose to take my place
And then for me, these words I’d hear You say
Forgive them for they know not what they do
I will go
Because I love them so
