Good Friday

Good Friday to you.
I haven't spent as much time reflecting today as I should have, but I have had a song in my head and heart all day. I would like to share the words with you.

Your only son no sin to hide,
But You have sent Him from your side
To walk upon this guilty sod
And to become the lamb of God

Your gift of love they crucified,
They laughed and scorned Him as He died,
The humble King they named a fraud
And sacrificed the lamb of God

O lamb of God, sweet lamb of God
I love the holy Lamb of God.
O wash me in His precious blood,
My Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God.

I was so lost I should have died,
But You have brought me to Your side.
To be lead by Your staff and rod,
And to be called a Lamb of God.

O lamb of God, sweet lamb of God
I love the holy Lamb of God.
O wash me in His precious blood,
My Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God.

(words by Twila Paris)

This isn't necessarily my favorite Easter song, but one that has made me think of the cross today.

What is your favorite Easter song? What speaks to you? I would love it if you would share the words with me.

God bless you this Easter weekend!

  • One of my favorites that I've been singing all week:

    Oh Lord, My Redeemder:

    And the Roman soldiers laughed,
    as they saw their prisoner stumble
    He did not revile them back,
    wondering I asked who was this man so humble
    And the woman by my side,
    choked on her reply,
    as she struggled not to weep
    The tears flowed down her cheeks,
    her heart breaking as she cried

    Oh Lord my Redeemer,
    thou has done so much for me
    Oh Lord my Redeemer,
    all my love I give to thee

    Then the crowd went pushing on,
    and I felt compelled to follow
    I knew that they were wrong,
    but they mocked Him all along
    Suddenly my heart felt hollow,
    for they nailed Him to a tree
    On a hill called Calvary,
    as I stood there filled with wonder
    The Heavens roared with thunder,
    and again I heard this plea

    Oh Lord my Redeemer,
    thou has done so much for me
    Oh Lord my Redeemer,
    all my love I give to thee

    I could not forget his face,
    and I wandered from that place
    With the questions ever burning and each answer came with grace
    And I knelt in earnest prayer,
    and his memory still there
    In the morning I felt joy beyond compare And the day turned into three,
    morning found me in a garden
    The gentle April breeze returned me to my knees
    Pleading for a pardon,
    and I can’t say when or why

    You opened up my eyes,
    his feet were there before
    His hands were open o’er me,
    His face I recognized

    Oh Lord my Redeemer,
    thou has done so much for me
    Oh Lord my Redeemer,
    all my love I give to thee
