This Hymn is embedded in my soul from a very early age. Seems so appropriate for a time such as this. I find myself begging in tears for healing for the Nations. Yet. I only could think of my prayers being, “Oh you Of Little Faith” Matthew 8:26…But, when words from this and other hymns spring forth so does my faith increase a little. Hope you sing along…🎼🎧🎤
“Crown Him with many crowns,
The Lamb upon His throne;
Hark! how the heav’nly anthem drowns
All music but its own!
Awake, my soul, and sing
Of Him who died for thee,
And hail Him as thy matchless King
Through all eternity.”

Thank you, Sara, for sharing the photo to think on and gaze upon and the hymn to sing along with 🎸
Yes, thanks for sharing….🙏🎶🎤✝️ We will sing praises to His Name, because He is worthy of praise! We are approaching Easter and we must remember what Jesus did for all mankind at Calvary. ✝️ 🙏
Debi says think on gaze upon and Tammy calls us to remembrance. The scene at Calvary invited a suffering that produced love to and for the world.
I’m reminded at every spot I pause suffering has enveloped man’s souls, physical strength and death looks many more than normal in the face as an uncontrolled virus has been given a name but not a cure. It’s global. One major thing it could do for those that believe Jesus the Son of God died on a cross, buried and rose again to give a type of Quid pro quo… “The Latin phrase quid pro quo originally implied that something had been substituted, as in this instead of that.” Think on that.
Fear is crippling yet only “…perfect love drives out fear,…” (I John 4:18) Perfect love is The Cross as Jesus took our sins upon himself. On the Cross Christ took away your sins, so that you might have the blotting out of them through His blood. And, so much more to understand and think on, gaze upon and bring to remembrance.
What a story to be told to the Nations! What a time in history to tell it! Easter question, Did Jesus stay on the cross?
“Easter question, Did Jesus stay on the cross?”
Here is the answer from John, one of Jesus’s disciples that I summarized.
“Joseph of Arimathea asked Pilate for the body of Jesus” John 19:38 (NIV) Nicodemus accompanied him.
Then, “Taking Jesus’ body, the two of them wrapped it, with the spices, in strips of linen. This was in accordance with Jewish burial customs. At the place where Jesus was crucified, there was a garden, and in the garden a new tomb, in which no one had ever been laid. Because it was the Jewish day of Preparation and since the tomb was nearby, they laid Jesus there.” John 19:40-42
“Early on the first day of the week, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene went to the tomb and saw that the stone had been removed from the entrance.”
Then she ran and told Peter and the other disciple Jesus loved that the tomb was empty. She thought someone had taken His body away… she didn’t know where they had put it and she was frantic! (vs 2)
When Peter and the other disciple looked in the tomb this is what they saw: “strips of linen lying there, as well as the cloth that had been wrapped around Jesus’ head.” (vs 6,7)
Mary cried and cried about this near the empty tomb. But Jesus was standing beside the tomb (Mary thought he was the gardener) and asked her, “Woman, why are you crying? Who is it you are looking for?” And when she answered, and then He said, “Mary”, she recognized Him…it was Jesus!!! (vs 11-16)
She must have wanted to hold onto Him because He had to say to her, “Do not hold on to me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father. Go instead to my brothers and tell them, ‘I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.”
Now, the Apostle Paul was not one of the 12 disciples and was not a witness to any of the above. But he had an encounter with Jesus on the road to Damascus (Acts 9) after Jesus was resurrected, again telling us that He did not stay on the cross.
This is his answer to the question: “Did Jesus stay on the cross?
“The first thing I did was place before you what was placed so emphatically before me: that the Messiah died for our sins, exactly as Scripture tells it; that he was buried; that he was raised from death on the third day, again exactly as Scripture says; that he presented himself alive to Peter, then to his closest followers, and later to more than five hundred of his followers all at the same time, most of them still around (although a few have since died); that he then spent time with James and the rest of those he commissioned to represent him; and that he finally presented himself alive to me. It was fitting that I bring up the rear. I don’t deserve to be included in that inner circle, as you well know, having spent all those early years trying my best to stamp God’s church right out of existence.” I Cor. 15:3-9
“But the truth is that Christ has been raised up, the first in a long legacy of those who are going to leave the cemeteries.” I Cor 15:20 (Message)
