The Wonderful Cross

When I survey the wondrous cross
On which the Prince of Glory died
My richest gain I count but loss
And pour contempt on all my pride

See from his head, his hands, his feet
Sorrow and love flow mingled down
Did ever such love and sorrow meet
Or thorns compose so rich a crown

O the wonderful cross, O the wonderful cross
Bids me come and die and find that I may truly live
O the wonderful cross, O the wonderful cross
All who gather here by grace draw near and bless
Your name

Were the whole realm of nature mine
That were an offering far too small
Love so amazing, so divine
Demands my soul, my life, my all

We sang this song tonight at church, and I love it! I love the power of these lyrics and how true and sweet they are. I love coming back to the point of knowing that my life has been paid for by Jesus and the wonderful cross. I love that truth more than anything else. I have to remember that because of that suffering, Christ demands my soul, my life, my all. I without a shadow of a doubt give him my all. I pray that my love for Him would never cease to increase, and that my life would continue to be an image of His. I pray that every person I come into contact with would feel the love of Christ that lives within my soul. My life has been bought, and I'm so thankful to be a daughter to the King who will reign forever. I thank God for the work that He has done in my life thus far. His love is everlasting, and unchanging, forever and ever. He is eternal, unlike anything else that you've ever known. Amen.
