'THE ANGUISH AT CALVARY'

Photobucket


Mrs. P's Haven of Refuge
.....`The Anguish At Calvary` .....

~~On a hill Far away Calvary's Tree ~ ~

***+++***

Are you weak and heavy laden
Are you cumbered down with care
Does the weight upon your shoulders
Seem like more than you can bear?

***+++***

Do you struggle with life's burdens
As you travel on life's road
Do you tend to bend and buckle
Under such a heavy load?

***+++***

My friend, just think of Jesus
How He suffered and He died
For our sins and our transgressions
He was whipped and crucified.

***+++***

Imagine how He stood the pain
 It cut right to the bone
The anguish that He must have felt
Up there, so all alone.

***+++***

Each strap that lashed across His back
Brought pain beyond belief
While soldiers laughed and scorned Him
How He prayed for some relief.

***+++***

 A crown of thorns was laid to rest
Upon His weary head
 While angry crowds cried crucify
He suffered and He bled.

***+++***

My friend, just think of Jesus
He was such a wretched sight
They bound Him to a rugged cross
He died without a fight.

***+++***

The nails were driven through His hands
He moaned in agony
Yet, He would do it all again
 He'd give His life for me.

***+++***

So my friend, just think of Jesus
When you grumble and complain
You'll see Him there on Calvary
The place where He was slain.

***+++***

That lowly figure on the cross
Will slowly come to life
You'll see the anguish in His eyes
The torment and the strife.
 
***+++***

You'll see the sweat upon His brow
The burdens that He bore
All the things that bring you pain
Won't matter anymore.

***+++***
