Sunday Reflections (9) -

Sunday Reflections Week 9! 


"But God forbid that I should boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ,
by whom the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world." ~ Galatians 6:14

"When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory."
 ~ Colossians 3:4

"Jesus, Keep Me near the Cross" by Fanny Crosby 

"1. Jesus, keep me near the cross; there a precious fountain, 
free to all, a healing stream, flows from Calv'ry's mountain.

Refrain: 
In the cross, in the cross, be my glory ever; 
till my raptured soul shall find rest beyond the river. 

2. Near the cross, a trembling soul, love and mercy found me; 
there the Bright and Morning Star shed its beams around me. 

In the cross, in the cross, be my glory ever; 
till my raptured soul shall find rest beyond the river.

3. Near the cross! O Lamb of God, bring its scenes before me; 
help me walk from day to day with its shadows o'er me. 

In the cross, in the cross, be my glory ever;
till my raptured soul shall find rest beyond the river. 

4. Near the cross I'll watch and wait, hoping, trusting ever,
till I reach the golden strand just beyond the river!

In the cross, in the cross, be my glory ever;
till my raptured soul shall find rest beyond the river!"
