Christians have been commemorating the last week of Jesus’s life prior to His crucifixion this week. And tomorrow, Christians will be celebrating the day that He arose from the grave and accomplished why He came to the earth.

This week hymns that I learned during my childhood concerning the cross and Jesus’s victorious resurrection have flooded my memory, causing me to sing them throughout my day. So, I decided that rather than blog an article this week, I would share some verses and choruses of songs I have been singing.

At The Cross by Ralph Hudson

Alas, and did my Savior bleed and did my sovereign die
Would He devote that sacred head for such a worm as I

At the cross, at the cross, where I first saw the Light
And the burden of my heart rolled away, rolled away
It was there by Faith, I received my sight
And now I am happy all the day.

He Was Nailed To The Cross For Me by F. A. Graves

What a wonderful, wonderful Savior,
Who would die on the cross for me!
Freely shedding His precious lifeblood,
That the sinner might be made free.

He was nailed to the cross for me,
He was nailed to the cross for me;
On the cross crucified for me He died;
He was nailed to the cross for me.

He Lives by Alfred H. Ackley

I serve a risen Savior,
He’s in the world today;
I know that He is living,
Whatever men may say;
I see His hand of mercy,
I hear His voice of cheer,
And just the time I need Him
He’s always near

He lives, He lives,
Christ Jesus lives today!
He walks with me and talks with me
Along life’s narrow way.
He lives, He lives, salvation to impart!
You ask me how I know He lives:
He lives within my heart.

Are You Washed In The Blood? by Elisha A. Hoffman

Have you been to Jesus for the cleansing power?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?
Are you fully trusting in His grace this hour?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?

Are you washed in the blood,
In the soul cleansing blood of the Lamb?
Are your garments spotless? Are they white as snow?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?

Lead Me To Calvary by Don Moen

King of my life, I crown Thee now
Thine shall the glory be
Lest I forget Thy thorn-crowned brow
Lead me to Calvary

Lest I forget Gethsemane
Lest I forget Thine agony
Lest I forget Thy love for me
Lead me to Calvary

The Cross Is Not Greater by Ballington Booth

The cross that He gave may be heavy,
But it ne’er outweighs His grace;
The storm that I feared may surround me,
But it ne’er excludes His face.

The cross is not greater than His grace,
The storm cannot hide His blessed face;
I am satisfied to know
That with Jesus here below,
I can conquer ev’ry foe.

I could not end this blog without including this last song Just for Me by Donnie McClurkin  

Well the cross will always represent the love God had for me
When the Lord of glory, heaven sent gave all on calvary
He did it just for me, just for me, Hallelujah
Jesus came and did it just for me.

Those of you who are older and grew up singing hymns, I am sure some of the hymns above are known to you. If you have not sung them recently, I pray you have been blessed just by reading the words. Additionally, I pray that not only this week or tomorrow but that we continue to celebrate in hymns what Jesus did for us long ago at calvary and that you are a partaker of the salvation that God has provided thru His Son.
