Cross of Love

This is an instrumental cover of a Twila Paris, Steve Green song
The lyrics go like this...

Blood and sorrow flow

from the languid brow

of Jesus dying;

and tears from Heaven's eyes

are the anguished drops

of a Father crying,

Oh, why?

This must be a cross of love

for God to bruise His only Son.

Jesus, what a sacrifice to reach us,

it had to be a cross of love!

Emblem of his pain,
(And the people jeered at Him
(and mocked His holy name)

oh splintered wood
(for they knew not who He was)

of my transgression
( nor why it was He came)

I'll never comprehend
(Some had come to offer help to soothe a mother's pain)

how an act so great
(but as she watched her wounded Son)

gave love expression
(the comfort never came)

Oh, why?

This must be a cross of love

for God to bruise His only Son.

Jesus, what a sacrifice to reach us,

it had to be a cross of love!
