Hope That Doesn't Disappoint

I Will Remember The Cross

11 Comments

I have always loved the Cross—Maybe because my father rocked all seven of us kids when we were babes, as He sang song after song about the Cross of Calvary.

I have always wanted to know the Savior who died on that cross so many years ago.

I have always loved to tell the Good News story….Beautiful from beginning to end…the Christ Child who was born to die so we might live eternally.

Fanny Crosby echoes the story of the life of our Savior in the song she wrote more than 100 years ago….A song that has stood the tests of time and is among the 8,000 she wrote during her lifetime.

 

 

Tell me the story of Jesus,

Write on my heart every word.

Tell me the story most precious,

Sweetest that ever was heard.

Tell how the angels in chorus,

Sang as they welcomed His birth.

“Glory to God in the highest!

Peace and good tidings to earth.”

Fasting alone in the desert,

Tell of the days that are past.

How for our sins He was tempted,

Yet was triumphant at last.

Tell of the years of His labor,

Tell of the sorrow He bore.

He was despised and afflicted,

Homeless, rejected and poor.

Tell of the cross where they nailed Him,

Writhing in anguish and pain.

Tell of the grave where they laid Him,

Tell how He liveth again.

Love in that story so tender,

Clearer than ever I see.

Stay, let me weep while you whisper,

Love paid the ransom for me

Tell me the story of Jesus

Write on my heart every word

Tell me the story most precious

Sweetest that ever was heard

Fanny Crosby lived to thank God for the gift of blindness.

“If perfect earthly sight were offered of me tomorrow, I would not accept it. I might not have sung
hymns to the praise of God if I had been distracted by the beautiful and interesting things
about me. “

                                                                                      ********

Why will I continue to love and remember the Cross? It’s life changing message has captured my heart, soul, mind and spirit.

Has the message of the Cross made a difference in your life?

    • Verna,
      Thanks for sharing your thoughts this morning. Oh yes, the turning point in our lives is the cross and Fanny saw it even through physically blind eyes with a greater spiritual vision than some of us. And the appearance…we all need spiritual eyes Jesus gives to behold him as Mary did.
      Have a blessed Good Friday and Happy Easter!
      Hugs

  3. Another beautiful post, Glenda! I remember the day the cross became real to me, even though I’d been raised in church and sang all the old hymns. But that day, it became personal, Jesus became real to me, and I realized for the first time the meaning of His sacrifice. Praise God!

    • Vonda,
      Isn’t our Lord gracious to send His Spirit to make the Cross personal in our experience. Like you say the Cross became real and the meaning of His sacrifice becomes reality. Thanks for sharing your thoughts dear friend. Have a wonderful Good Friday and Easter Resurrection Morn.
      Hugs

    Hmmm….interesting how this blog I posted two years ago came up on my facebook page. Must need to post it again, since today is Palm Sunday and next week we celebrate the good news of Easter.
