The Sacrifice was Made

The sacrifice was made.  My blood was shed.  The day turned dark.  I was separated from my Father.  "My God, my God why did you forsake me.”  These were the words I spoke.  I was in such agony but for the joy set before me I endured the cross.  You are that joy.  I died to redeem mankind.  When I rose again from the grave, I defeated death and brought eternal life to all who would believe.  Come to me all that labor.  All that are heavily laden come to me.  The poor, the distraught, the sick can all come to Me, and I will give you rest.

I died for you.  Your victory was paid with my blood.  Come and abide with me.  Come and have a relationship with Me Jesus and with God the Father and with the Holy Spirit.  The three of us are One.  We love the world.  That is why I came.  I came because I love you.  So receive your blessing.  Receive your peace.  Receive your salvation.  They are gifts from me.  Turn to me and find hope, hope eternal.  Turn to me and find peace.  Find everlasting love.  For I am with you, when you turn to me.  When you come to me, I will not leave you or forsake you.  Forever I’ll be yours.  

Yes, the sacrifice was made; come now and receive all that I have in store for you.

My Ever-Present God

In the middle of my trouble
In the midst of the storm
You will not leave me on the steps
You will not abandon me as an orphan

You are present
You live inside my heart
You cannot leave me
You will not let me go

Your sweet Holy Spirit
 Whispers in my ear
I know the sound
It brings laughter out of chaos
Joy after mourning

You are the light
That radiates my path

You remain throughout
The joy and the pain

Thank You my ever-present God
My King and Savior
My Rock, My Redeemer
Thank You for holding me oh so gently
Thank You for breathing into me
The breath of life

I love You my Blessed Lord
No matter what I say or do
You will never run away
