Prayers on a theme of The Cross - 2

 

[ 1 ] [ 2 ]

 

Three times
the cock crowed
and by the third
the whole world knew
that Peter had denied his Lord
The echo of that moment
can still be heard today
each time we hide our face
afraid not of death
but a mild rebuke
or at the worst
a little ridicule
the world may never know
our silent denial
for as yet, Lord
it has not known
our silent faith

 


 

Lamb of God, you shed for me
Your life upon a blood stained tree,
Your life for mine, love re-defined
An offering, a ransom, release
You gave so much, O Lamb of God
ALL: Just as I am, I come

The doubts I have, the pain I feel
When at your feet I humbly kneel
You take it all, both great and small
Give freedom, forgiveness and peace
I have the choice, O Lamb of God
ALL: Just as I am, I come

Lamb of God, I hear your voice,
And hearing know I have a choice
To make a start, within my heart
A willingness, to journey by faith
You ask no more, O Lamb of God
ALL: Just as I am, I come

By waters still, through fire and storm
Your love continues to transform
And with that call, you welcome all
No barriers now, no limits, just grace
No more excuses Lamb of God
ALL: Just as I am, I come

 


 

In our walk to the cross
and beyond
who will roll the stone away
show us the empty tomb
our risen Saviour
Messiah
Only you, Lord
as you revealed yourself
to three women
early on that Resurrection morning
Only you, Lord
as you revealed yourself
to hesitant and frightened disciples
in the upper room
and showed your wounded side
Only you, Lord
as you revealed yourself
through the power of your Holy Spirit
on that Pentecost morning
and reveal your self today
through tongues of fire
and through the gentlest of breeze
through revelation
and revolution
in hearts and souls
In our walk to the cross
and beyond
who will roll the stone away
show us the empty tomb
our risen Saviour
Messiah
Only you, Lord
Only you

 


 

Worthy are you
Worthy are you
Lamb of God to receive from us
the worship and praise
that's due your name
As with the angels we proclaim
Worthy are you
Worthy are you
Lamb of God, slain for us
you shed your blood
to pay the price
of sinfulness through sacrifice
Now to Him who sits on the throne
and the Lamb who leads us home
Be Praise and Honour
and Glory and Power
for ever and ever
Amen
