Lenten season keeps us focused on the sufferings and death of Jesus Christ. His crucifixion, while gruesome and gut-wrenching, is the price he gladly paid for the sins of the world.
That not only reveals the depth of your wickedness; even more so it reveals the depths of God’s love.
Oh, come, my soul, your Savior see
Nailed to the cross on
Your pains he bears;
Your thorns he wears
That yours a crown of life might be.
‘Tis yours, my soul, the sin, the shame,
The cross, the nails, the thirst, the pain;
His blood runs free
To write in heaven’s book your name.
Oh, sing, my soul, sing endlessly
The wondrous love that sets you free;
His dying breath
Brings life from death,
Makes heav’n your home eternally.
Oh, Come, My Soul
Hymn 99, Christian Worship
