A prayer about Jesus (Lyric) by Sing4Jesus!
Lord teach me please, to know Your Way,
The pain You suffered all on Good Friday,
While this earth with love You save
On us who doth with anger rave.
"Teach me O Lord to understand
The last of all the falls You've had
While on Your way to Calvary
Your lovely sacrifice - just for me".
Thus prayed I, and Iwent to sleep
(The Lord indeed doth promise keep);
The following day revealed His pain
My prayer was never said in vain.
Next morning, I, my local road did cross
Surprisingly I had a nasty toss
A passing bike had brushed me pas
Into confusion on the ground was I cast.
Some people gathered round to mend
Especially one - indeed a friend;
They pulled me to my feet to see
If I was all right and unhurt within me.
The name of Jesus cried my heart
The very moment I had a nasty start
Then His peace just kept flowing on
All scare and fright seemed to be gone.
One person stood out amongst the crowd
To call Him friend I am so proud
He gave me a drink I loved it so much
His help to me my heart did touch.
He took me to the hospital near,
To cast away any of my remaining fear
He thought I might be having still
For the security of his mind - to see me well.
"You're all right", explained a Dr Fusad
Who no doubt was quite amused.
There's nary a scratch or wound to show
An accident you have been through".
My friend and I then went our ways
And slowly I got out of my daze
Of the event I had just been through
Could it indeed really be true?
I kept wondering what the plan
Of God was, through my accident.
Perhaps of goodness and of love
And of His ample mercy from above?
That night I thanked Him and praised His name
And wondered about this sort of game
I had been through and didn't know
About the meaning of Life anymore.
Then the wisdom of the Spirit spoke
All chains and barriers He broke
His peace and love to me, it flowed on
All through the night until the next morn.
The Holy Spirit spoke to me as well
Of the joy I felt - it's really hard to tell
The pain of His third fall I knew
So I'd like to share it all with you.
Now look: Christ carried His cross on Good Friday
And He had three falls he had along the way
Of shame and a Father's abandonment
For us - all His energy He had spent.
His whole body was badly bruised
Him the people all around abused:
"Crucify Him, Crucify Him!", out they cried
Cos in His love they did not abide.
Wine mixed with gall, He had to drink
Little did they realize the link
To the freedom they dreamt through their striving
Thinking the Saviour's still arriving!
No one was willing to carry the weight;
Simon of Cyrene was forced to take
A share of the load our Lord bore on
For you and for me and our sinful life run.
Now my conclusions are really everv so clear
And are given to me by the Holy Spirit dear
Of my accident and our Lord's Calvaric fall
This indeed makes me feel so small.
I fell down and also our Lord did too
All seemed to know me - Him none really knew
They pulled me up - He tried so hard
Juice was I given - He got gall from a guard.
Willingly someone came and helped me
But Simon of Cyrene was forced to see
The only way for him through the city
Was to carry the cross - by fear or by pity.
This makes me see His love for me
Cos the people around were all happy
To see me walking around on my feet again
Without a scratch or sign of much pain.
But our Lord was far worse-off than me
The sort of treatment He had scares me
To see Him dead was their only plan
And of all who belong to His heavenly clan.
This proves to me no doubt, that just
When you pray with your heart and trust
The Lord will speak in different ways
Within a moment or in several days.
Each event of your life will surely show
How your life for God can quickly grow
If you will only ask Him please to
Reach out and prove Himself to You.
Are you willing to grasp gratefully
The shining road to the heavenly safety?
Just tell Him, "O lead me on, help me up
I am all Yours Jesus! You can sign me up!"
