AN INVITATION

This story has no end
We are espoused to the King
He chose us
We are His elect
He loves His bride
We are the Body of Christ

We feel undeserving
Of His mercy and love
His love knows no bounds
His sacrifice complete
The King of Glory
Bids us come to the Cross
For forgiveness

In surrendering to His will
Our lives are transformed
A softness, tender as a rose
Pervades our being
A faithfulness defines us
In a reciprocal relationship
With our King, the Lamb of God
We are espoused to Him
His love never dies

The Marriage Feast
Is coming soon
Make haste
Accept His proposal
Humble yourself
In service to the King
For many await knowledge
Of His mercy and His love
Love others as He has loved you
Introduce them
To the King of Glory

UNSURPASSED LOVE

Loving Jesus
Scourged and spat upon
Taking my sins upon you
Suffering for me
Even while I preferred to stay in darkness
You hung on the Cross for all mankind
Suffering the crushing weight of sin
While all continued to rebel against You
Not considering the enormity of sin
But You, condemned
By the wrath of the Father against sin
An evil scourge not removed
Except by the sacrifice only You could supply
And the Father, suffering immeasurably
Giving You, His only Son
To suffer such ignominy and pain, loss
The loss of the love of the Father
And a death You feared might be Your end
A grave You couldn’t see beyond

We kneel
Bowing our heads to You
The Lamb of God
Our Redeemer
