Contemplative Lyrics

Sweetly Broken

To the cross I look, to the cross I cling
Of it's suffering I do drink
Of it's work I do sing

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

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


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

These are lyrics from Jeremy Riddle's song Sweetly Broken. This song has been a favorite for awhile now and this morning I left the player on repeat when it came on. Every time I hear these lyrics, I just cant quite grasp the magnitude of what he is saying. I pray that my comprehension would grow, yet I am sure I will never know the full extent of my salvation until I am present with the Lord.

Nice background/wallpaper. The girls are crazy, it isn't too pretty for the soldiers.

My blog is no longer the musings of a crazed musician.

My name is Jack Burton, but you can call me Jack.
