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

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

Chorus:

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.
