Lead Me to the Cross

 We sat at a piano in the lobby of the hotel this morning where we are currently staying while awaiting surgery, and Jesse led us to the throne of grace in worship. He struggles to speak sometimes. He struggles to read, too. Last night, he read this blog unassisted for the first time since all of this began. We are talking about deep things and laughing at the silly things and weeping and sitting in silence. We are resting when rest will come and walking around in the sunshine enjoying the cool breeze when there is energy to move one foot in front of the other. We are marveling at the relentless way that Jesus has loved us all along, and breathing deeply His promises. God is so, so gracious and good.

 
“Savior I come, Quiet my soul remember

Redemption’s hill

Where Your blood was spilled, For my ransom

Everything I once held dear

I count it all as loss


Lead me to the cross
Where Your love poured out

Bring me to my knees

Lord I lay me down

Rid me of myself

I belong to You

Lead me, lead me to the cross


You were as I, Tempted and trialed

Human

The word became flesh, Bore my sin and death

Now you’re risen

Everything I once held dear

I count it all as loss



Lead me to the cross

Where Your love poured out

Bring me to my knees

Lord I lay me down

Rid me of myself

I belong to You

Lead me, lead me to the cross”
