~ Love Crucified A Rose ~

Jesus how You anguished on that lonely cross
I will never comprehend,
But, then in rising from the grave,
In such glory, You appear again.

By just One Life You conquered all
With all You had to give,
What will that mean for me
Upon each day, how then shall I live.

Can I imagine, or enter into the purpose of the pain
To understand why You died,
Will that help me come to know
What it means to be Your precious bride.

While You hung there, bearing all my grief
Stained unclean, shattered with my sin,
What love, what far reaching sight to see
Me, so pure within.

That, when You arose, to lift my heart on high
In Your loving arms, even then,
With all the power of heaven's love
You were breaking every chain of death.

So now I am flying gloriously free
Bound no longer by aging of this earth,
New life is mine, I am released
I now know..
Your resurrection is my birth.

Soft Whispers from
Derry's Heart Poems 2005

Long ago He blessed the earth
Born older than the years
And in the stall the cross He saw
Through the first of many tears
A life of homeless wandering
Cast out in sorrow's way
The Shepherd seeking for the lost
His life the price He paid

Love crucified arose
The risen One in splendor
Jehovah's sole Defender
Has won the victory
Love crucified arose

And the grave became a place of hope
For the heart that sin and sorrow broke
Is beating once again

Throughout Your life You've felt the weight
Of what You'd come to give
To drink for us that crimson cup
So we might really live
At last the time, love and die
The dark appointed day
That one forsaken moment when
Your Father turned His face away
~Michael Card~

Crucified and laid behind the stone
You lived to die, rejected and alone
Like a rose trampled on the ground
You took the fall and thought of me
Above all
~Michael W. Smith~

It wasn't nails that held Jesus to the cross
It was His love
