I was so excited to hear that Patter was going to continue the Hymn/Scripture Challenge for 2013. I was having so much fun with it last year and was learning so much. Now for the 1st song that Patter chose!
Lift High the Cross was not a song I knew nor can I remember hearing it before, but I loved Patter's write up. And, then listening to the song I realized just how beautiful the song is and what truths it has written in the verses.
My scripture came from verse 3:
O Lord, once lifted
On the glorious tree,
As Thou hast promised
Draw the world to Thee.
And with that I was reminded of the verse in John 12:32 "But I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to myself."
I am excited that I was one of the ones that He has drawn unto Himself! But I have good news, He wants to draw all to Himself. All you have to do is believe on Him, Jesus Christ, and you can receive Him as your Lord!
You can find the song here and please check out the version that Patter has on her blog also. It is so detailed with the crucifixion.
Another part of a favorite verse in the song is highlighted at the bottom of my page and without further ado, here it is!
I used spring colors and flowers as this reminded me of spring and new growth!
Here is a close up of the verse!
