only You, Yeshua, are worthy

This gift of love and righteousness
Scorned by the ones he came to save:
Till on that cross as Jesus died,
The wrath of God was satisfied -
For every sin on Him was laid;
Here in the death of Christ I live.

 
Up from the grave he rose again
And as He stands in victory
Sin's curse has lost its grip on me,
For I am His and He is mine -
Bought with the precious blood of Christ.
 
 
From life's first cry to final breath.
Jesus commands my destiny.
No power of hell, no scheme of man,
Can ever pluck me from His hand;
Till He returns or calls me home,
Here in the power of Christ I'll stand.

we are getting ready to share time with loved ones this easter season.
 
may each of you have a beautiful easter yourselves.
 
may He open our eyes more this year to the everyday wowness in the gift of Jesus, who intends to be our very Life when we receive Him.
 
our cursed flesh need not be our default.
 
oh, thank you, Lord.
