Beyond The Cross ~

Beyond the cross,
there’s a glorious view
for in Jesus’ death . . .
all things are made new.

New beginnings,
fresh clean starts
eternal hope
to fill our hearts.

Beyond the cross,
there is new life
the end to sin
and worldly strife.

No more battles,
no more struggles
no more satan
causing troubles.

Beyond the cross,
there are no fears
no death, no pain
and no more tears.

Despair will end,
suffering will cease
there will only be
everlasting peace.

Beyond the cross,
hope springs anew
all because Jesus . . .
died for me and you!

~~~~~~~~~

Hebrews 12:2

“Looking unto Jesus
the author and finisher of our faith;

who for the joy that was set
before him endured the cross,

despising the shame,
and is set down at the
right hand of the throne of God.”

It Is Finished ~

“It is finished”
words of agony from Jesus’ lips
“It is finished
no greater love will again eclipse.

“It is finished”
these words aloud Jesus said
and for the sins of everyone
His soul hemorrhage and bled.

“It is finished”
but, what really had just begun
was that grace and forgiveness
were freely given by God’s Son.

“It is finished”
but, for you it can be a new start
if you repent now of your sin
and give Jesus your whole heart.

“It is finished”
Jesus died so that you’d be free
let His death on  Calvary’s cross
take your soul to its knees.

“It is finished”
but, it’s not the end of the story
not until the day all of mankind
stands before God’s in all His glory.

“It is finished”
words of hope from Jesus’ lips
“It is finished”
don’t let His love for you eclipse!

~~~~~~~~~~~

John 19:30

“So when Jesus had received the sour
wine, He said, “It is finished!” And
bowing His head, He gave up His spirit.”

It Started With Just One Nail ~

One nail was all it took,
to crucify Christ that day
it started with just one nail
for the crowd to get their way.

One blow upon that nail,
got the crowd to cheer and yell
“Crucify Him, Crucify Him”
put the hammer to that nail.

One nail was all it took,
for them to secure His fate
one large, iron nail became
the spike of their distaste.

One bang upon that nail,
their voices swelled and soared
“Crucify Him, Crucify Him”
as they began to nail the Lord.

One nail was all it took,
though they used all three
but, it started with that one nail
so all sinners could go free.

All it took was that first nail,
for the crowd to be satisfied
just one strike upon that nail . . .
and our Savior they crucified!

~~~~~~~

Mark 15:13-14

“And they cried out again, Crucify him.”

Then Pilate said unto them,
Why, what evil hath he done?

” And they cried out the more exceedingly,
Crucify him.”

Thank God It’s Good Friday ~

I thank God,
it’s Good Friday
I’m so grateful
for this one day.

For my Savior,
endured for me
the pain, the shame
to set me free.

I thank God,
for Jesus dying breath
for it saved me
from eternal death.

For my sins,
on the cross He bore
so I could have life
with Him forever more.

I thank God,
it’s Good Friday
for Jesus is to Him . . .
the only pathway!

It’s About You Lord ~

It’s all about You Lord,
not about me . . .
it’s all about what You did
on Calvary’s tree.

It’s all about Your love,
the gift of Your grace
it’s all about that day
my sins You erased.

It’s all about Your life,
Your Truth, the Way
it’s all about giving You
my faith each day.

It’s all about Your strength,
Your might and power
it’s all about trusting You
my every waking hour.

It’s all about Your mercy,
Your compassion and affection
it’s all about making You . . .
the image in my reflection.

It’s all about You Lord,
not about me . . .
it’s all about Your blood
setting me free!

Thank You Father ~

Father, thank You for the Cross,
for all Jesus did for me
for opening my eyes
so my fallen state I could see.

Thank You for Your mercy,
the scourging of my sin
for opening my ears
to Your wooing voice within.

Thank You for Your favor,
the thorns of righteousness
for opening my mouth
so my wrongs I could confess.

Thank You Father for Your love,
the lashings of my shame
for opening my heart
so I could call upon Your name.

Thank You for the blood,
that poured out from Your Son
for the gift of salvation . . .
You granted to every one!

His Stripes ~

His stripes,
my forgiven sin
His chastisement
my peace within.

His wounds,
my transgression
His death

His bruising,

His sorrow,
my corruption
His grief
my adoption.

His stripes,

was upon him;
and with his stripes
we are healed.”

Son Rise ~

Lord, open up eyes,
and hearts too
so others may today . . .

Open up their minds,

so others may today
be forgiven of their sin.

Open up their ears,
let them really hear
the reason Your Father
even sent You here.

Open up their souls,
to Your eternal grace
so others may today
Your life in theirs embrace.

Father, open up souls,
ears, hearts and eyes
so others may today . . .
see Your glorious Son rise!

Happy
Resurrection Day


The Grace of A Savior ~

God has for us,
an overflowing supply
of mercy and grace
for us to daily apply.

We can put it on,
be it night or day
we just need to ask
for it, when we pray.

Abundant it is,
it will never run out
it’s what being forgiven
is really all about.

God will release it,
as we require
for granting it to us
is His heart’s desire.

For all those in need,
of God’s mercy and favor
all you need is faith . . .
and the grace of a Savior!

~~~~~~~~~

Romans 5:1-2

“Therefore being justified by faith,
we have peace with God through
our Lord Jesus Christ:

By whom also we have access by faith
into this grace wherein we stand,
and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.”

When You Walk in The Light ~

There’s a lot of temptation,
that we must daily fight
there is a lot of confessing
when you walk in the light.

There’s a lot of acknowledging,
the sinfulness we daily fight
there is a lot of repenting
when you walk in the light.

There’s a lot of recognizing,
the evil we daily fight
there is a lot of conviction
when you walk in the light.

There’s a lot of fessing up.
to  the vices we daily fight
there is a lot to let go of
when you walk in the light.

There’s a lot of temptation,
that we must daily fight
there is true repentance
when you walk in the light!

~~~~~~~~

1 John 1:7-9

“But if we walk in the light,
as he is in the light, we have
fellowship one with another,
and the blood of Jesus Christ
his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

If we say that we have no sin,
we deceive ourselves,
and the truth is not in us.

If we confess our sins,
he is faithful and just
to forgive us our sins,
and to cleanse us from
all unrighteousness.”

no other way about.

The Great Exchange ~

The Great Exchange ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

He forgives,
the unforgivable
He loves
the undesirable.

the unjust
He atones

He justifies,
the wicked
He paid for
the crooked.

He pities,
the helpless
He delivers
the hopeless.

He condemns,
not a one
He pardons
all evil done.

Jesus exchanged,
His life for ours
so won’t you today . . .
please give Him yours?

The Power of the Blood ~

cleansed-by-the-blood CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

The power of the blood,
is our souls atonement
for Jesus became for us
our spiritual proponent.

His life and death brought,
with God reconciliation
for our sins Jesus suffered
shame and humiliation.

His blood has the power,
to cleanse us from all sin
to wash away the stains
they have left deep within.

The day He died for us,
was the day of justification
the cross on which He hung
was for our sanctification.

The power of the blood,
brings to all eternal peace
for Jesus died so we could be
from sin, finally released!

~~~~~~~~~

Leviticus 17:11

” For the life of the flesh is in the blood:
and I have given it to you upon the altar

could be secured.

Onto Jesus ~

Onto Jesus ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

All my inequity,
all of my sin
God put it all
all onto Him.

Onto Jesus,
God set my soul
so by His stripes
I’d be made whole.

Every unkind word,
evil thought or look
onto the cross
Jesus obediently took.

The lusts of my mind,
the deceit in my heart
onto Jesus’ own heart
God did impart.

Onto Jesus,
God placed my strife
then for my sins . . .
He gave up His life!

True Love ~

Come to the Cross ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ Hew Died for All - IBible Verse

He felt forsaken,
by His Father above
He was truly hated
so we could find true love.

He was condemned,
so we could be justified
He was beaten
so we’d be healed inside.

He was made sin,
so we could be set free
He was crucified
so from sin we could flee.

He gave up His own life,
so we could be redeemed
He was our punishment
so we could be esteemed.

He bled and He died,
so we could forever live
He hung on a cross
so our sins, He could forgive!

All Because of His Name ~

All Because of His Name ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ photo/creationswap

He who had no fault,
no witness to defame
was declared guilty . . .
all because of His name.

He who broke no law,
nor to Satan did He obey
was crucified to death
for our iniquity that day.

He who did no wrong,
was put to public shame
ridiculed upon the cross
all because of His name.

He who had no sin,
took the punishment for us
with each piercing stab
on Him that was thrust.

He who had no fault,
took our share of blame
so He could forgive all . . .
who call upon His name!

~~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 53:2-5

“For he shall grow up before him
as a tender plant, and as a root
out of a dry ground: he hath no
form nor comeliness; and when we
shall see him, there is no beauty
that we should desire him.

He is despised and rejected of men;
a man of sorrows, and acquainted
with grief: and we hid as it were
our faces from him; he was despised,
and we esteemed him not.

Surely he hath borne our griefs,
and carried our sorrows: yet we
did esteem him stricken, smitten
of God, and afflicted.

But he was wounded for our
transgressions, he was bruised
for our iniquities: the chastisement
of our peace was upon him;
and with his stripes we are healed.”
