In My Place

image

A perfect love upon the cross
He bled and died for me
He bore my sin and cleared my name
His suffering set me free

A crown of thorns pressed in His head
Blood running down His face
The punishment that I deserved
He took it in my place

At Your Feet

At Your feet

I lay my burdens

I drop each trial, fear, and shame

 

At Your feet

My pain is lifted

Peace comes when I speak Your name

 

On the cross

You died for me

You shed Your blood to save my soul

 

So at Your feet

I humbly bow

It’s in Your presence I become whole.

Undeserved Grace

image

His blood stained robe
A crown of thorns
His selfless sacrifice
My life transformed

A wooden cross
His nail scarred hands
The pain He suffered
I’ll never comprehend

His love, eternal
An undeserved grace
As He took His last breath
My sin was erased.
