Default Re: Musings of a New Heart and a Partially Renewed Mind

Resurrection Day

Out of billions to come and go
why should I be someone to know
Who is this man you're mindful of
and visit with such grace and love
So I shall wonder at your choice
and listen for that still small voice
But alway eyes upon the cross
and only glory in that loss
For I am but one breath away
then wait for resurrection day


Ballad of A Cross and A Crown

This is the ballad of a cross and a crown
and the man who was so punished
though no fault in him was found
The scoffers would mock him
even his own would flee
Still with his last breath
"Father forgive" was his plea

This is the ballad of a cross and a crown
and the man who dreaded the first
then in the garden fell down
For he knew Abba Father
and he knew his good will
So he stood in our place
he stands as our Advocate still

This is the ballad a cross and a crown
and those who must pick up their own
and come follow him now
For a cross must come first
only then comes reward
Along with a cherished
"well done" from our Lord

This is the ballad of a cross and a crown
and a man who took on the first
in glory wears the second now
