HE DIED BUT LIVES

When Jesus was born in that manger

Did any expect to see

Christ Jesus, the Savior of mankind,

Hanging from a cross tree?

 

 

Or anticipate the trouble felt

By disciples just learning to walk

Stumbling along in their sinful way

Listening while Jesus taught?

 

 

And did they anticipate God’s heart

Breaking in sending His Son

To die the torturous death He died?

Did they think that anyone?

 

 

On earth was near worthy of that price?

We threw it back in His face.

But He died for mankind anyway,

How can we measure Grace?

 

 

The measure is found when He rose from death!

When hundreds saw Him alive.

The same who had seen Him on the cross

The same we had crucified!
