God's redeeming work is done
He shed His blood, the battle is won,
He lives forever our Glorious King,
We share His love and praises sing.
He carried His cross for all to see
Up Calvary's rugged hill that day,
He gave His all and took my place,
Someday I'll look upon His beautiful face.
When I look upon a cross
It reminds me of the price He paid,
Such love He gave that day for me,
Died for my sin, and set me free.
Three crosses are empty on Calvary's hill
Jesus died and obeyed His Fathers will,
He bore the stripes, and took my pain
So no one will die for me ever again.
Behold your Savior of mankind
Who willingly, hung on the cross
Oh, How He took our sin and strife,
He gave the best, to give us life.
It's done the price has been paid
Forgive them Father, He cries,
He then bows His sacred head,
Gave up the ghost and died.

Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them;
for they know not what they do.
And they parted his raiment, and cast lots.
Wishing you a blessed Easter!
