From Captive to Calvary

image of Christ cwith cross dying for you

 

Tremendous love flowing from Calvary is mine

You hear my soul asking my sinful nature to refine

Take all that is unlike You away from me

That a greater path to holiness I would see

Stained with sin I am

Crimson tide of Calvary sets my captive spirit free

Blood of our Saviour who is crucified

Tried, mocked, scorned, rejected, despised, beaten

Betrayed by Judas, denied by His followers

Crown of thorns put upon His head

Cheap Roman vinegar wine instead of water

By a Roman soldier He is fed

How is it God should love you so?

Why would He take time to love you?

Because we are all God’s children

I pray you see

No matter what you have done

Today, you can feel the Son

If you would ask forgiveness for all your sin

Let Him come and dwell within

Allow Him to be your guide

Through storms and blue skies

His peace in you would abide

Knowing He is always by your side

About osborne2029

I enjoy spending time with people just having a coffee or talking about life, philosophy, religion, politics or sharing a favorite joke or story. We learn from one another as we interact and share our joys, challenges and even our times of sadness. I enjoy reading, writing, singing and sharing in the blessing of community whether that is one on one or in groups. I'm married and am powned by two kitties named Sir William of Lounge a.k.a. Sir Lounge a Lot and Princess Catherine of Chaos a.k.a. Her Royal Highness Catherine of Englehart. I m in an M.A.-Ph.D program with St. James the Elder Theological Seminary to train to become a psychotherapist and priest. Let us pray for and reach out to each other with kindness, love and an embracing compassion. We can working together be servants with two open hands to those in need so that hate, indifference and inequality would lose and love will win. The peace and abounding joy of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.
