Splendor Of The Cross


by Betty Jean Robinson


How all of heaven must have shined that day
When on a lonely planet far away
They watched their suffering King His head bowed down
Tears seen thorns where there had been a crown

There were no flowers blooming all around
Where His precious blood came streaming down
See the King of Glory dying for the lost
Oh, the awesome splendor of His cross

And that old cross will always testify to me
For there my Savior died alone to make me free
And now what things were gained to me, I count for loss
To own my Savior and the splendor of His cross

They cursed Jesus and dared Him to come down
As they gambled for His robe there on the ground
But God answered man's rebellion with His love
For all must come to the cross and through the blood

Ten thousand angels stood at His command
Yet, He cried, "Father forgive them for their sins"
Behold your Savior dying for the love
Oh, the awesome splendor of the cross

And that old cross will always testify to me
For there my Savior died alone to make me free
And now what things were gained to me, I count for loss
To own my Savior and the splendor of His cross

What things were gained to me, I count for loss
To own my Savior and the splendor of His cross

 





 GOD'S MOST AMAZING GRACE

If there had been another way,
Do you think He would have died?
No other man could take his place,
Not even if one tried.

God did not ask for volunteers,
But even if He had,
Would you have said, "Take me instead?"
Folks would have thought you mad.

None of us was good enough,
To take His place upon that cross,
None of us was rich enough,
To have paid that high a cost.

It's hard to believe a loving God,
Would sacrifice His Son,
But, it had to be that way, you see,
He was the only One.

He took our sin along with Him,
As directed from above,
None of us so generous,
We would offer that much love.

He said He would leave the tomb,
He would ascend to heaven,
Three days later He was gone,
Hallelujah! He Was Risen!

Brother, you could not substitute,
You could not take His place,
He took yours - the only way,
God's most amazing grace.
