I Saw The Cross

Updated on January 16, 2012

Pastor Michael has been in the ministry for 10 years. He currently is pursuing his Master's from Andersonville Theological Seminary.

I saw the cross to the sky,

Looking up for help on high

Bowed to me knees I cried

For sin had hidden my joy

I heard His pain

I saw His agony

Stretched out arms

Nails in hands and feet

I had lived solely for me

And so had He

My sins dropped to my knees

They hung Him on the cross

My heart was bruised

My body broken

His was tortured just for me

The skies blackened from my sin

As He hung taking them in

The Earth quaked

The temple curtain torn

Yet Jesus said it was for me

He bore my pain

He quieted my heart

He caused my sin to part

I saw the cross today

I saw an empty grave

I saw the risen Saviour

And I was saved

For I saw the cross today

      Awesome and well written! Sometimes we take for granted what Jesus has done for us. May we all see and understand what exactly Jesus did for us on that cross- for He has risen from the dead and so have we. The sin that caused us to be dead/separated from God has not a grip on us anymore- Jesus let us see you, feel you, and walk on the path that leads us home to you!

      Lifegate,

      I am so glad someone replied by catching the I had lived solely for me and so had He, that does sum up just what salvation in Christ is,the pics are the neighborhood around our church, we walked out there awhile and had a lot from the park and soccer fields watching and they spurned quite an interest. It was one of the few times we had dry weather this entire month. I missed the cross carrying Good Friday work wouldn't let me off. ( it's the last time I ever work on Good Friday though job or not)

      Michael,

      Another job well done. "I had lived solely for me

      And so had He"--So very well said, at least if we're honest with ourselves. I have to agree with Dave--the pictures are great, too. Are they from your Good Friday Walk?
