THE GORY CROSS

The gory Cross
Was a bloody sight
It was darkness from noon to three
The day Jesus died.

A crown of thorns
Made for His head
The King of the Jews mocked
The day Jesus died.

The crowd shouted
Crucify Him! Crucify Him!
He suffered the whip
The day Jesus died.

A gory sight
He paid the price
Blood like beads of sweat that flowed
The day Jesus died.

A soldier pierced His side
Blood and water gushed out from inside
Many were saved
The day Jesus died.

The Lamb of God
Was the perfect sacrifice
He who had no sin became sin
The day Jesus died.

So will you in sin still wallow?
When Jesus, your ransom has paid
It was all washed away
The day Jesus died.

THE PRICE

When my sins a multitude high,
Were the very nails in His hands;
On Golgotha, the place of the skull,
Jesus died to pay the price.

Betrayed, condemned to die,
Yet He said: “Father, forgive them, for they don’t know what they are doing”.
His gift not for a penny,
But for the salvation of many.

The curtain halved, the love of God reconciled.
The temple destroyed, Satan overjoyed;
That I forever in shackles bound.
But alas! The temple rebound;
Three days, death could not succumb.

For the price of my soul,
His blood was for my Heaven’s toll.
The Lamb of God, to heaven restored;
To the right hand, forever as Lord.
