…just sharing some artwork I did for our church for today.
Hope your day is filled with lots of family and love.
One of my favorite old easter hymns:
Alas! and did my Savior bleed
And did my Sovâ€™reign die?
Would He devote that sacred head
For such a worm as I?
At the cross, at the cross where I first saw the light,
And the burden of my heart rolled away,
It was there by faith I received my sight,
And now I am happy all the day!
Thy body slain, sweet Jesus, Thineâ€”
And bathed in its own bloodâ€”
While the firm mark of wrath divine,
His soul in anguish stood.
Was it for crimes that I had done
He groaned upon the tree?
Amazing pity! grace unknown!
And love beyond degree!
Well might the sun in darkness hide
And shut his glories in,
When Christ, the mighty Maker died,
For man the creatureâ€™s sin.
Thus might I hide my blushing face
While His dear cross appears,
Dissolve my heart in thankfulness,
And melt my eyes to tears.
But drops of grief can neâ€™er repay
The debt of love I owe:
Here, Lord, I give myself away,
â€™Tis all that I can do.
