You were tortured but You did not break
Struck repeatedly, feeling pain – done for my sake
They took a spear and punctured Your side
To make sure that You were dead inside
Entombed for three days and then risen
So that this sinful being may be forgiven
You gave Your life, it was not taken
You did this so I would not be forsaken
Sin and death cannot rule me anymore!
Oh, my Savior, it’s because I’m Yours!
It is not me who should glory
But Thee! For I am not worthy
You bought me with a hefty price
Your blood – Your loving Sacrifice
You bought me from certain carnality
Now I am Your servant for eternity
I am no longer mine
Lord Jesus, I am Thine
Have a great Resurrection Day, everyone. 🙂
P.S.: You may have noticed that I used “Resurrection Day” instead of “Easter” – to me, when I think of “Easter” I think of eggs, bunnies and candy, but that isn’t what the holiday should represent. So I use “Resurrection Day” because it gives Jesus glory for His resurrection and ascension, and what He accomplished. And if you are curious about how the name “Easter” came about (like I was – curiosity kills the cat lady 😂), here is a fascinating article: Is The Name Easter Of Pagan Origin?

Images like this one breaks my heart – they show just how much pain and torture He took on for my sake, and that makes me love Him that much more. ♥
