Love Song of Redemption by Mark Ettinger

Friends, it’s been quiet on the blog for a few days.  I attended a women’s conference with singer/speaker Julie Meyer.  Talk about the cross!  Wow, does that lady pack a song!

I am so glad that Mark decided to contribute one of his poems to the blog.  Mark has a great compassion for people who don’t know God but perhaps would like to know him.  I think you’ll see that reflected in his poem, Love Song of Redemption

 

Love Song of Redemption

( Just in case you don’t know God . . . this one’s for you! )

Have you heard the revelation – all about the Resurrection

And what it is that Jesus did for you 1

There’s a story that foretold Him 2

There’s a grave that could not hold Him 3

So you’d realize that He did rise for you

It’s a love song of redemption

Of the power of His affection

Your salvation rests at Heaven’s open door

The world brought you affliction

The Lord brought crucifixion

So you don’t have to suffer anymore 4

Now just call the Name of Jesus 5

He’s the one that came to save us

All of Heaven is rejoicing over you 6

You won’t miss the life you’re living

You will love the life He’s giving

And you’ll realize- that He did rise for you

And you’ll see the place that He prepared for you 7

It’s a love song of redemption over you

And now please allow yourself a moment with God . . .  Do you see me, God?

About Lift the Cross of Jesus!

My day job is writing--I'm an author and publisher of a number of books. More on that later. But there is nothing of greater importance to me than the early morning hours I spend with the Creator of the Universe. Although He knows everything there is to know, His greatest delight isn't to give us knowledge, but to give us love. My highest joy is to watch the sun rise with notebook in hand and write the words he speaks to my heart. I want to share some of those words with you here . . . words on the cross.
