The Message of the Cross

THE CROSS WHERE JESUS GAVE HIS LIFE


He bowed Himself under the cross,
Became the Servant of man.
He freely suffered there for us,
He took our punishment there.
There are no words for the love He showed,
On Calvary He died alone.


The cross where Jesus gave His life,
It is my glory and my honor.
The cross, the token of God’s perfect love,
Will always be my story and my song.

The cross was risen for the world,
So lost in darkness and shame.
The Son of God became the One,
To bear the burden of man.
Now I can see Him through tears of joy,
He loves me, and He took my place.


The cross where Jesus gave His life,
It is my glory and my honor.
The cross, the token of God’s perfect love,
Will always be my story and my song.

Will always be my story,
It will be the only story,
Will always be my story and my song.

The Gospel of Matthew Chapter 28:16-20

The Great Commission

Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, to the mountain which Jesus had appointed for them.
17 When they saw Him, they worshiped Him; but some doubted.
18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.
19 “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
20 “teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.
