Friday Thoughts: Rise Up

Leon Bonnat, “Christ on the Cross”, (1874)

.

i can’t get to the altar fast enough

i thirst

i am laden

my yoke is hard

my burden is heavy

Jesus!

body

blood

soul

divinity

Jesus!

save me, Lord, i’m sinking

i throw my hands upon the raft

i reach for the tassels of Your robe

i cling to Your right hand

hold me fast!

union, Lord Jesus

union

in union may i suffer

take not it away

union, Lord Jesus

union

i cling

You hold fast

we rise together

first You

then me

Thru You, With You, In You

in me, with me, thru me

rise, rise, rise

rise up

oh ancient doors

ENTER THE KING OF GLORY!

    We are one body. The church is the one body, thus we all suffer with you, and we all rise with you! Thank You, my Lord and my Christ. Everything with You, my Lord. Nothing without You! How I love You! You are our life and our salvation!
