Beautiful Terrible Cross

There is a beautiful terrible cross
where though You committed no sin
Savior You suffered the most wicked fate
on the cruelest creation of men.

Yet on that beautiful terrible cro
You did what only You could
turning that dark inspired evil of hell
into our souls' greatest good.

We see the love that You showed us
we see the life that You lost
We bow in wonder and praise You
for the beautiful terrible cross.

There on that beautiful terrible cross
though darkness was strong on that hill,
You remained sovereign Lord, still in control
as Your perfect plan was fulfilled.

We see the love that You showed us
we see the life that You lost
We bow in wonder and praise You
for the beautiful terrible cross.

We gained the riches of heaven,
Jesus, You paid the horrible cost
We stand forgiven and praise You
for the beautiful terrible cross.

Song by Selah.

2 Corinthians 4:16-18

Therefore we do not lose heart. Though our outward man is perishing, the inward man is being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but what is unseen. For what is seen in temporary, and what is unseen is eternal.

Keeping Myself Accountable

I am working really hard at memorizing some scripture. I know lots of bits and pieces, but haven't ever learned "chunks" of my favorite verses or verses I can use when going through different things. I am going to start posting them so I can keep myself accountable. My first one to tackle was Psalm 100, and here goes(I'm writing this from memory!)--

Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands
Serve the Lord with gladness. Come before His presence with singing.
For the Lord, He is God. It is He who has made us and not we ourselves.
We are His children, the sheep of His pasture.
Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise
Give thanks unto Him, and bless His name.
The Lord is good. His mercy is everlasting and
His truth endures for all generations.
