at the cross…

at the cross

Have you ever listened to a song and it made you feel something? like a sensation that made you stop what you were doing and get on your knees? A lot of Hillsong music does that to me. I find myself raising my hands while driving, praising Jesus and thanking Him for all he has done and is doing for me. I have to remember not to close my eyes in worship while driving. I am pretty sure that’s worse than texting while driving.

their song “at the cross” brings me to tears almost every time i listen to it. I wanted to share with you the lyrics (in black) and my thoughts (in blue)

Oh Lord You’ve searched me
You know my way
Even when I fail You
I know You love me

even when i don’t say anything at all, you knew me before i was born [Psalm 139:16 ] , before the earth was formed [Jeremiah 1:5] you knew ME, you knit me together [Psalm 139:13]. you know all my thoughts and know if there are any anxious ways in me [Psalm 139:23]
you forgave me and choose to die so i could have eternal life [Romans 5:8]

even when i fail

Your holy presence
Surrounding me
In every season
I know You love me
I know You love me

Lord you said that if i trust you you will always be here with me [Psalm 32:10] Father knowing that no matter what season i am in life you are going to be there with me. guiding me, directing me, and walking before me. What a blessing to have you as my teacher. [1 John 3:16]

At the cross I bow my knee
Where Your blood was shed for me
There’s no greater love than this
You have overcome the grave
Your glory fills the highest place
What can separate me now

this is when the tears start to flow. at the cross, the cross that you were murdered on, the cross that you gave up your life on, the cross that was covered with my sin, the cross that held sacrificial love. [Galatians 6:14 nlt] [Romans 14:11] You did as you said you would. you overcame the grave, death could not hold you there. Lord thank you for being truth, life, and love. [Romans 4:25] neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord [Romans 8:39] when i think about what you did for ME, for the sinner i am, i am overwhelmed with emotions. what a gracious God you are.

at the cross i bow my knee

You go before me
You shield my way
Your hand upholds me
I know You love me

Oh Jesus you go before me, you light the path for me. Guiding me and shielding me from the enemy. although the enemy attacks me and throws stones i know that i have you there with me. and no matter what i will live in eternity with you. [Psalm 59:10]

You tore the veil
You made a way
When You said that it is done

Lord when we seek you and turn only to you the veil is taken away. only then can we see. Father help me to keep my eyes focused on you. seeking only you. [2 Corinthians 3:16]

And when the earth fades
Falls from my eyes
And You stand before me
I know You love me
I know You love me

i am looking forward to the day when the this earth fades away, when the skies are opened and i get to sit at the feet of my Jesus [Psalm 65:8]. I wonder what it will be like, i know we will praise you all of our days but Jesus i want to see you, i want to live in your house, in the room you made just for me. [John 14:2-4]

I know you love me Jesus
