“The skies lay low where You are
On the earth You rest Your feet
Yet the hands that cradle the stars
Are the hands that bled for me…
In a moment of glorious surrender
You were broken for all the world to see
Lifted out of the ashes
I am found in the aftermath…
Freedom found in Your scars
In Your grace my life redeemed
For You chose to take the sinner’s crown
As You placed Your crown on me…”
Love the description sung of coming to Christ when we initially accept Him in our hearts… Being lifted from the ashes, from the dust, being born again into something greater and saved from the ashes of death… Then later it’s described as being lifted out of the wreckage, the debris, the mess and chaos of our lives to something that contains greater peace, rest, and joy…
“..And in that moment You opened up the heavens; To the broken the beggar and the thief..” Just can’t get enough of this image of how desperate and broken our lives and spirits are and the need for our Savior Christ. Then the final statement of “…Knowing I’m found; In the LIGHT of the aftermath…” how amazing!
Tune in for the next study of A Beautiful Exchange as we continue studying the Sacrifices of Christ and their meaning!
Thank You and God Bless!
