{Happy Easter}



because He lives..
there is hope.
for you and for me.

knowing Christ died, that's history.
believing He died for me, that's salvation.

i'll never, ever forget
that moment.
when at 6 years.
i asked Christ
into my heart and life.
at that old church alter.
i've never looked back.
and that was the
happiest day of my life.
i will never forget
that clean, happy feeling.
like a slate wiped clean.

"On a hill far away
 stood an old rugged cross,
the emblem of suffering and shame.
& I love that old cross
 where the dearest and best
for a world of lost sinners was slain.
So I'll cherish the old rugged cross.
till my trophies at last I lay down.
I will cling to the old rugged cross,
& exchange it some day for a crown.
O that old rugged cross.
 so despised by the world,
has a wondrous attraction for me;
for the dear Lamb of God
 left his glory above
to bear it to dark Calvary.
In that old rugged cross.
 stained with blood so divine.
a wondrous beauty I see.
for 'twas on that old cross
 Jesus suffered and died,
to pardon and sanctify me."

Happy Easter
