Why Weepest Thou?

1. I stand all amazed at the love Jesus offers me,
Confused at the grace that so fully he proffers me.
I tremble to know that for me he was crucified,
That for me, a sinner, he suffered, he bled and died.
2. I marvel that he would descend from his throne divine
To rescue a soul so rebellious and proud as mine,
That he should extend his great love unto such as I,
Sufficient to own, to redeem, and to justify.
3. I think of his hands pierced and bleeding to pay the debt!
Such mercy, such love and devotion can I forget?
No, no, I will praise and adore at the mercy seat,
Until at the glorified throne I kneel at his feet.
Oh, it is wonderful that he should care for me
Enough to die for me!
Oh, it is wonderful, wonderful to me!
Charles H. Gabriel, 1856–1932

**ON this day we celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.. Although religion has changed in the passed years to accommodate every interpretation, thought process and way of life, 2 things remain constant to me: God the father allowed his only begotten son to be born into this Earth so he could one day be the sacrificial land for all who would live here. PERIOD.  It didn't matter their race, stature, weight, gender, or gender preference. He didn't care if they were Republican, Democrat, Liberal. You didn't have to be right wing, left wing or enjoy chicken wings.  Any who possess a physical body would qualify for this sacrificial love.  When the children of the world turn on each other in anger, I can't help but wonder how much the Lord weeps in our behalf and in behalf of the wasted efforts of the Sacrifice of his son. Ours is not to judge but to accept and allow God to use judgement.  
*we must do better at loving each other*
