THEY SOON FORGOT HIS WORKS; THEY DID NOT WAIT FOR HIS COUNSEL! PSALM 106:13
Picture Jesus beaten, battered, used an abused crucified for you. Hear Him asking this question:
"Is it nothing to you, all you who pass by? Behold and see if there is any sorrow like My sorrow,
which has been brought on Me, which the LORD has inflicted in the day of His fierce anger?” Lam.1:12
TO NEVER FORGET HOW FAR MY LORD WENT TO SAVE ME!
What will cause me to surrender my all to You;
To always keep your heart and love for me in view?
Pleasing You Jesus is my heart’s deepest desire!
Let Calvary increase in me love’s holy Fire!
It was for me the cruel scourge,
Your agony's groans so loudly heard!
It was for me Your shredded skin,
Those open wounds caused by my sin!
That You would take my stripes of blame,
My heart is filled with deep, dark shame!
Your heart, Your soul in love for me,
Filled with anguish so I’d be free!
Your torture, Your torment oh how grim,
Showing the greatness of my sin!
Rivers of love from my heart flow,
For You taking blow after blow!
Hands full of evil held that whip,
Filled with Satan in every hit!
With loud laughs from the pits of hell,
Demonic hate on Your body fell!
Your back, Your side a mangled mess,
I too scourged You I must confess!
So broken, in deep degradation,
The whip, my sin, humiliation!
Your blood still flowing at great loss!
Step by step as You went to my cross,
Abused now to Calvary’s hill,
Filled with my sin – Your Father’s will!
You took my garment so sin stained,
Washed in Your blood a pure one gained!
Knowing Your sufferings clearer I see,
The torture, You are now dearer to me!
Oh the breadth, length, depth and height,
Boundless love enwrapped in Your light!
I surrender my all to You dear Lord,
Obeying the One whose life outpoured!
Fulfill this is my deepest desire,
My soul being baptized with Your fire!
So I will love You more and more,
Living waters on Your heart to pour!
Tears of love flowing down my cheek!
To not forget Your anguish I seek,
This is the only vision I desire,
To see how You loved me, I will not tire!
Out of Your stripes a sweet fragrance came,
Healing my wounds in Jesus’ Name!
May my walk be, a sweet savor too,
Holiness, that will bring glory to You!
Your scars to see what joy it will be,
With You in Heaven to love on Thee!
Once more I’ll read Your sufferings again,
To never forget Your pain for my sin!
