Humbly Recieve

John 19:30  (NIV) – When he had received the drink, Jesus said, “It is finished.” With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.

Even as I look at the cross
And the pain for me you bore
My mind cannot even grasp
The amazing love at its core

My heart is overwhelmed
At the very thought of how
Every scripture was fulfilled
So I can have salvation now

Why Lord why, would you die
For mere dust such as me
Why leave your heavenly glory
To go through that cross gory

The more I think and ponder
The more I am lost in wonder
At the undeserved, precious love
That flowed for me, from above

And so Lord this I know for sure
All I can do is humbly receive
This free gift of salvation you assure
To you my life as living sacrifice give
