so close to our hearts
The cross where Jesus died,
But so much
more than the blood-stained cross
Is that Jesus came back to
The stone's been rolled away;
The tomb lay open and
They looked for Him, and then the angel said
That He is
no longer here
Oh what joy they must have felt
To see Him
just once more,
To eat with Him, to drink with Him,
Him back as Lord
So much did He accomplish
death upon the cross
And in His rising from the dead,
reconciled us back to God
Nothing else could bridge the
That sin had wrenched apart —
Now we can freely go to
And receive Christ in our hearts.
