He is Risen!

Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God
Who takes away our sin
He came the sinless
Son of GodTo cleanse our hearts within
He hung upon the blood-stained cross
Thinking of you and me
Dying like some hardened criminal
His body in agony
His blood flowed down from the cross
His body tormented with pain
He cried out to His Heavenly Father
But it seemed no answer came
People stood and jeered at Him
Mocking to the end
Who Jesus was and why He came
They couldn’t comprehend
Their hearts were indifferent to the Lord
Their consciences grew ever cold
His mother watched on - unable to bear it
As the sword pierced through her soul
As you try to grasp this picture
The pain that Christ went through
Remember that day you were on His mind
He endured it all for you
Just so you could know His love
And forgiveness for your sins
To know His resurrection power
And to have His life within
He cares that much about your life
He endured the cross for you
Like those who jeered, or those who loved
With Jesus – what will you do?
