Easter Weekend Tune Up

Today is Good Friday, when we acknowledge and celebrate the beginning of THE defining moment in the world's history, in the lives of us all, whether we know it or not. The Son of God was sacrificed for our wrong-doings, giving up His very life so that we, through depending on and trusting in Him, can have the opportunity to live forever.
So, in honor of that, and as a way to tune our hearts toward Him as we celebrate Easter and His victory over Death itself, I share with you the following song - Avalon's "The Glory". The lyrics follow, then a link to listen (it wouldn't let me embed this one). Take a few moments to listen, reflect, give thanks and honor the Savior of our souls.

In the solitary moment of His birth
On this barren dusty land
All of heaven kissed the face of the earth
With a miracle of love
God became a man
But He was sent away to draw His final breath
When He was only thirty-three
And in the shame of dying a criminal's death
He cleansed an angry world
And in His suffering I see

The glory of the blood
The beauty of the body
That was broken for our forgiveness
The glory of His perfect love
Is the heart of the story
The glory of the blood

Now I have tried to find salvation on my own
In a search for something real
But there's a guilty heart inside this flesh and bone
Fall upon His grace
And I begin to feel

repeat chorus

And when I close my eyes I can see Him hanging there
Oh the precious wounded Lamb of God
All the majesty in this world cannot compare to the glory
The beauty of the body
That was broken for our forgiveness

repeat chorus

But He was sent away to draw His final breath
When He was only thirty-three


Happy Easter, Dry Ground friends! Rejoice!
