We Thank You For The Cross

During my run this morning I reflected on life and the things I need to be grateful for. As I began to think of the meaning of Easter Weekend the song For The Cross by Bethel came to mind. For me, the lyrics perfectly echo the sentiments of Good Friday, the day Christ was crucified, and Easter Sunday, the day he rose from the dead.

If you are unable to watch the video I have placed the lyrics below for you to read! Happy Easter, may you and your family have a truly Blessed day!

The life You gave
Your body was broken
Your love poured out
You bled and You died for me
There on the cross
You breathed Your last as you were crucified
You gave it all for me

Hallelujah, what a Savior
Hallelujah, what a friend
Hallelujah, King forever
We thank You for the cross

There in the ground
Sealed in the darkness
Lifeless laid
The frame of the Father’s son
In agony
He watched His only Son be sacrificed
He gave it all for me

But on that day
What seemed as the darkest hour
A violent hope
Broke through and shook the ground
And as You rose
The Light of all the world was magnified
And You rose in victory

Hallelujah, it is finished
Hallelujah, it is done
Hallelujah, King forever
We thank you for the cross

Though our sins are scarlet
You have made us white as snow. x2
