What the cross did for me…


I had to give an offering anytime I did wrong;
Whether it was unintentional or deliberate;
The law was a bond; always making me conscious of sin;
Making me recount every misdeed I did;
Whenever I presented my sin offering.

But God had mercy on me;
When He saw the burden was too much for me to bear;
He sent His only Son to die as the ultimate and perfect sacrifice;
So I didn’t have to pay for my sins anymore.

All I needed to do was to believe in His sacrifice;
And accept Him as mine;
And it was a done deal.
Now I don’t feel burdened anymore;
All I have to do is lay my cares on Him;
And it’s all taken away!

When I do wrong and ask for forgiveness,
He forgives me and remembers my sin no more;
I don’t have to feel guilty about it;
His blood has made me clean.

This is what the blessed cross did for me;
His death reconciled me back to God.
