The Moment

The Moment

 

 

The moment when the man was chained

For things that he was falsely blamed

 

The moment when the crowd turned up

To free the one who was corrupt

 

The moment when they slashed his back

Like butchers with a lamb did hack

 

The moment when they placed the thorns

With wicked laughs and verbal scorns

 

The moment when he held the tree

With beaten eyes could barely see

 

The moment when he walked to death

No word was spoken from his breath

 

The moment when they nailed him to

The cross he bore for me and you

 

The moment when they mocked and stared

With very few that really cared

 

The moment when the ebbing pain

Brought forth forgiveness in his name

 

The moment when the sins were taken 

As Father turned, he was forsaken

 

The moment when the guilty’s plea

Would grant him grace to soon be free

 

The moment when it was complete 

He breathed his last and stopped his beat

 

The moment when his body lay

A stone would soon be rolled away

 

The moment when he rose again

Defeating death and killing sin

 

The moment when I knew my sin

Was why the Lord did enter in

 

The moment when I saw his pain

To give his son that we might gain

 

The moment when he calls to me

To accept his grace and set me free

 

The moment when I trust in thee

He grants me life eternally

 

The moment when my greatest pleasure

Is to know that Jesus is my treasure 

 

The moment when I turn to God above

And serve Him with a heart of love

 

The moment when I pass away

Into a life where I can say,

 

Thank you Lord for making me,

Because your love does overflow

You knew my sin before my birth

But greater love then did you show

You sent me Christ to take my sin 

And carry it to the grave

A plan you fashioned before time

A plan to free and save.

 

 

You did not have to send your son,

But now I see his face.

And all this thanks to your love for me

And your undeserved grace.
