Painting by Fra Angelico (c. 1395-1455)


RESURRECTION...rebirth, revival
REFORMATION...correcting errors or removing defects
RESTORATION...bringing back to original condition

When I think of what You gave for me
upon that cruel tree
My heart becomes very heavy
and I must bow on bended knee.
What a price, You paid that day
for each and everyone
My God, my heart cries out to You
for giving up Your Precious Son!

I thank You, that He does live on
and because of what He gave
We can live in victory on Earth
for our souls, He did save.
We have been given the chance to reform
our sinful and wicked ways
God, help us with the choices made
as we live out our days.

It is with a most grateful heart
that I seek Your Face today
Thanking You, Lord, for loving me
and guiding me on my way.
One day I will stand before You
and I desire to hear You say
Well done, thou faithful servant
you are in Paradise to stay.
