Suggested Readings To Read Through The Bible In A Year

Wednesday   April 21, 2010   Matthew 26-28 and Psalm 68

This morning as I once again read the last three chapters of Matthew and consider what Jesus endured for me, I can hear a song in my mind. It is a song that bridges centuries, as the verses were written by Isaac Watts who lived from 1674 to 1748 and the chorus by Chris Tomlin and friends at the very beginning of this century. For believers from every generation, every nation, every people group the hope of our salvation is found in what Jesus did on the cross. Today my response to the reading is to pray the words of the song writers to my Savior . . .


The Wonderful Cross


Verse 1

When I survey the wondrous cross

On which the Prince of Glory died

My richest gain I count but loss

And pour contempt on all my pride


Verse 2

See from His head His hands His feet

Sorrow and love flow mingled down

Did e'er such love and sorrow meet

Or thorns compose so rich a crown


Verse 3

Were the whole realm of nature mine

That were an offering far too small

Love so amazing so divine

Demands my soul my life my all


Chorus 1

O the wonderful cross

O the wonderful cross

Bids me come and die and find

That I may truly live

O the wonderful cross

O the wonderful cross

All who gather here by grace

Draw near and bless Your name
