A good friday...

For whatever reason, I just remembered that today is Good Friday. I've spent a lot of my day working here, in my home office. From time to time, Matt pokes his head in and wants me to keep him company. I can tell he's bored. Just a short time later I can hear him yelling at the current tournament basketball game. It's that time of the afternoon that the sun finally reaches my desktop. It's so vibrant and warm...

Then I heard it from the other room...

Before the throne of God above
I have a strong and perfect plea
A great high priest whose name is Love
Who ever lives and pleads for me.

My name is graven on His hands
My name is written on His heart
I know that while in heaven He stands
No tongue can bid me thence depart.

When Satan tempts me to dispair
And tells me of the guilt within
Upward I look and see Him there
Who made an end of all my sin.

Because of sin my Savior died
My sinful soul is counted free
For God the Just is satisfied
to look on Him and pardon me.

Behold Him there, the Risen Lamb
By perfect, spotless righteousness
The great unchangable, "I AM"
The King of glory and of grace.

One in Himself, I cannot die
My soul is purchased by His blood
My life is hid with Christ on high
With Christ my Savior and my God!

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Praise the One, Risen Son of God

I have the ability to work, live and breathe ONLY because of the cross.
