AT THE FOOT OF THE CROSS

Written by: Gordon McConnell

At the foot of the cross
what would we see?
if we had been there
what would our verdict be?

Standing on holy ground
there on Golgotha’s hill
seeing God’s son die
all in God’s holy will

See the thorn filled crown
upon the saviour’s head
hear the mockery and abuse
such was the awful dread

Hear God’s son plead
to His father in heaven
why have you forsaken me?
as His life was being given

Then as Jesus was crucified
breath His very last
there the curtain was torn
the old way was past

God’s new kingdom had come
but if then we had looked up
would we have believed?
seeing Jesus drink His bitter cup

So when we look back
at these events today
Jesus is Lord and king
is that what we pray?
