Father, thank You for the Cross,
for all Jesus did for me
thank You for opening my eyes
so my fallen state I could see.
Thank You for Your mercy,
the scourging of my sin
thank You for opening my ears
to Your voice deep within.
Thank You for Your grace,
the thorns of righteousness
thank You for opening my mouth
so my evil ways I could confess.
Thank You for Your love,
the lashings of my shame
thank You for opening my heart
so I may call upon Your name.
Thank You for the sacrificial blood,
that poured out from Your Son . . .
thank You for the gift of salvation
for my soul, Christ has won!
“But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower
than the angels for the suffering of death,
crowned with glory and honour; that he by the
grace of God should taste death for every man.”
Deborah Ann Belka
King James Version
