An Easter message.
|On his knees in complete submission,
our Savior weeps. His tears fall as he
prays for another way. Ready to lay his
life down, he looks up; there is no other
way. The terrifying reality is here at last.
His blood is to be shed so mankind can
As he prays he realizes that he's alone,
and he alone can bear man's sin. The
weight is crushing, almost too much to bear.
He who had no sin must bear this burden,
to carry and absolve the sin of all mankind;
past, present, and future.
He is lifted on the cross between God and man.
The perfect veil.
When God looks at us, he sees the purity of Christ.
On that cross hung between Heaven and Hell, he
paid it all. The perfect Lamb was slain. They put him
in the grave, and sealed it tight.
When Mary came to visit behold the grave stood open
and Mary cried out, where is my Lord? An angel bright
said he has risen as he said.
