Behold Redemption

Awake, awake and see the One
Who left the glory of His throne
God incarnate though He be
Became a Lamb for you and me
Lift up your eyes from shame and loss
Behold redemption on the cross

Awake, awake and cast aside
The chains of unbelief and pride
Look upon the cross and see
Perfect love’s humility
Paid in full, the debt we owe
As redemption’s blood-streams flow

Awake, awake come as you are
His fullness waits to heal, restore
Oh, see the perfect Lamb of God
As crimson tear-drops stain the sod
The curse of sin will not endure
His blood makes our redemption sure


Isa. 52-55

I was reading in Isaiah and needed to re-read
This line multiple times to let its impact sink in…..
‘Yet, it pleased the Lord to bruise him…..’ Isa. 53:10
The Lord saw the finished work!!!!

So this is what the Sovereign LORD says: "See, I lay a stone in Zion, a tested stone, a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation; the one who trusts will never be dismayed. Isa.28:16
