OUR SAVIOR LIVES

God could have abandoned us

Left us to die in our sins  

Instead He sent Jesus

our precious Savior

Who volunteered to die

in our place

for we are sinners to the core

He could have abandoned us

in Gethsemane

But His love for us

is unsurpassed

He died a cruel death

on the Cross

He would not let us

die in our sins

But woos us to the Cross

where we are convicted of the evilness

 of our sins

and of the power

of sin

to separate us from God

He leads us to repentance

then offers us forgiveness

in His mercy and grace

 

We worship a living Savior

God raised Him from the dead

Of this we are certain

Remember Thomas, who doubted

Then Jesus asked him

to put His hand in Jesus’ side

and look upon the holes in Jesus’ hands

The apostle became a missionary for Jesus

as did countless followers of Christ

Now, knowing Jesus is the Messiah

we, too, are asked to be missionaries

to spread the Good News

of what Jesus has done

to save us

Let us invite the Holy Spirit

to guide us in all things

Knowing that our loyalty to God

will be tested

before Christ Jesus comes again

 

STANDING WITH THE KING OF GLORY

Oh hopeless sight

Under cold, gray sky

dead and decaying

knarled tree branches reach heaven-ward

Heaven’s gate reflects light

Many will attempt to enter

naked and knarled

without robes of white linen

These souls were misinformed

God’s home is shut to sinners

Who can enter?

One leaning not

on one’s own understanding

but on Jesus

He is wise; we are

foolish in our own

reasoning

Rest on His leading

Show Him you love Him—

Obey the Ten Commandments

Claim His sacrifice on Calvary

Repent and seek after holiness

not the world’s pleasures

Prepare to stand

 in God’s presence

The gate to heaven

will open only for those

who follow Jesus Christ

and who know Him intimately

One can approach the throne

of God, with other

humble saints

clothed in His robe of righteousness

prepared for a permanent stay

with Him

the King of Glory
