Thank you for the cross, Lord.
Thank you for the price you paid.
Bearing all my sin and shame, in love you came
And gave Amazing Grace.

Thank you for this love, Lord.
Thank you for the nail-pierced hands.
Wash me in Your cleansing flow, now all I know...
Your forgiveness and embrace.

Worthy is the Lamb
Seated on the throne.
We crown You now with many crowns
You reign victorious!
High and lifted up
Jesus, Son of God.
The darling of Heaven, crucified...
Worthy is the Lamb.

    Beyond circumstance and beyond himself, Jesus carried the burden of separation and dumped it straight where it belongs: in Hell. Fully God and fully man, the mystery of God revealed in what seemed silliness and weakness to the world. Love conquered all.
    Wash me in your cleansing flow: The life is in the blood, or so thought our ancestors, literally and symbolically. To be awash in blood sounds gross, and it is, but to view it as a metaphor is a better method. The life that Jesus lived and his essence (blood) washes over his people, displacing bitterness, despair and death.
    Worthy is the lamb: A reference to Revelations where only the one who has met God's requirements for living is allowed to open the scroll that initiates the beginning of the end. All of creation and heaven was waiting for Jesus and his purpose to be revealed before continuing. Lambs were ritually killed as offerings in Judaism for a multitude of reasons including erasure of sin. As part of the ceremony, the lamb's blood may be sprinkled upon person for whom the sacrifice was given, further explaining the symbolism of the blood.
    The darling of heaven, crucified: Jesus, killed brutally and purposefully. This was a slow death, painful and humiliating to the victims and families thereof.

    The "darling of heaven crucified". Pierces my heart every time I hear those words. Jesus is the beloved Son. He is the perfect Lamb of God, come to take away the sins of this world. Thinking of this sacrifice should always make us bow in reverence and cry tears of thanksgiving and joy. Jesus is seated at the right hand of God, making intercession for each of us. We must know that Jesus is so soon to come. We must be found by Him working to bring His kingdom to this earth, His will being done. Thank you, Lord, for entrusting us with your power and authority to accomplish the impossible in Your mighty name.
