To the Cross I Look...

There's another song that I have been meditating on a lot the past few weeks- humming the tune to myself, repeating the words over and over in my mind. The Song is Sweetly Broken by Jeremy Riddle:

To the cross I look,
to the cross I cling
Of its suffering I do drink
Of its work I do sing

For on it my Savior
both bruised and crushed
Showed that God is love
And God is just

Chorus:
At the cross You beckon me
You draw me gently to my knees, and I am
Lost for words, so lost in love,
I’m sweetly broken,
wholly surrendered

What a priceless gift,
undeserved life
Have I been given
Through Christ crucified

You’ve called me out of death
You’ve called me into life
And I was under Your wrath
Now through the cross I’m reconciled

Bridge:
In awe of the cross I must confess
How wondrous Your redeeming love and
How great is Your faithfulness
