Sabbath Song

There is No Greater Portrait  by Eric Schumacher and Daivd Ward

There is no greater portrait
Of love and sacrifice
Than Jesus leaving glory
And laying down His life.
When I look on the sufferings
My Savior chose to bear,
It fills my heart with sorrow
To think I put Him there.

He ran the race before Him
Though it was filled with pain,
And walked the road to glory
In agony and shame.
Then for the joy before Him,
He chose to bear the cross,
Pursued His Father’s pleasure
And counted all else loss.

The Son of Man was lifted
Before creation’s eyes;
Was mocked and scorned by soldiers,
By kings and priests despised.
But now the Son is risen,
Ascended to the skies.
By angels He is worshipped;
By nations glorified.

O Savior, let this sinner
Be ransomed by the flood
Of mercy and forgiveness
Abundant in Your blood.
O Lord, be my salvation,
Your Holy Spirit send
To change my heart and cause me
To love You to the end.

In the end...

Last weekend we attended a family conference at our church.  Two take away ideas for me were these:
  1. The best day of my life will be my last, because I will enter into the presence of my Lord on that day. My time here is short, so I should use it for those things that count.
  2. Your priorities are what you actually do, not what you talk about doing.

This song and these ideas are running through my mind this morning, so I thought I'd share.
