One sombre Friday

Crossbeam. Sign. Ground. Nails.

Pound. Pound. Pound.

Pierced. Contorted. Thirst. Terrible. Grace.

Writhing. Raised. Mounted. Hung. Suspended.

Spasms. Heaving. Sarcasm. Sponge. Tears. Taunts. Forgiveness.

Dice. Gambling. Darkness…. Earthquake. Cemetery.

Excerpt from No Wonder They Call Him The Savior, by Max Lucado

For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. ~ John 3:16 

……………………………………………………………………………………………

Silence
Trying to fathom the distance
Looking out ‘cross the canyon carved by my hands
God is gracious
Sin would still separate us
Were it not for the bridge
His grace has made us
His love will carry me

Chorus:
There’s a bridge to cross the great divide
A way was made to reach the other side
The mercy of the Father, cost His son His life
His love is deep, His love is wide
There’s a cross to bridge the great divide

God is faithful
On my own I’m unable
He found me hopeless, alone and sent a Savior
He’s provided a path and promised to guide us
Safely past all the sin that would divide us
His love delivers me

The cross that cost my Lord His life
Has given me mine

There’s a bridge to cross the great divide
There’s a cross to bridge the great divide

The Great Divide – from the album The Whole Truth by Point of Grace
