THE CRUCIFIED

Our eyes need a beacon, our tired feet a guide,
There’s One who qualifies; that is the Crucified!
We hunt for a meaning to all life’s mystery,
There’s One who can help; as He whispers: “Follow Me.”

There’s One who can comfort, in our deepest pain,
‘Tis the One who died on the cross, that life we could attain!
There’s One who can make us, God the Father’s friend,
The Blood He shed on the cross, in God’s eyes makes amends!

Everyone needs a shoulder, on which they can cry,
A Place of comfort, to which we’ll never be denied!
There’s One available, whether it be day or night,
I can hear Him whisper: “I will make things bright!”

Our tired aching body, needs a place to rest,
There’s One who qualifies; He’s been thru’ ev’ry test!
He offers peace and joy; we will never be denied,
There’s One well equipped; it is Christ, the Crucified!

There will come a time, when we hear Christ call our name,
High in the clouds; this time glory, no more shame!
If we believe that on that cross, Christ for us died,
Our new bodies will be Heav’n bound, with the Crucified!
