Good Friday Reflections At the Cross

It's Good Friday...and all day I've struggled with what to write.  
The cross of Christ is where my mind and heart have been.  
This is the day that we remember Christ's crucifixion upon the cross...how He suffered and died to save us from our sins and give us eternal life.

These pictures are of the floating cross at the 
Warren W. Willis Youth Camp in Fruitland Park, Florida.
It was at this very cross that I fully surrendered my heart and life to the Lord as a teenager,
and committed myself to serve Him all the rest of the days of my life.

The hymn, "At The Cross", by Isaac Watts says it best.  

  1. Alas! and did my Savior bleed
    And did my Sov’reign die?
    Would He devote that sacred head
    For such a worm as I?


Refrain :
At the cross, at the cross where I first saw the light,
And the burden of my heart rolled away,
It was there by faith I received my sight,
And now I am happy all the day!

  1. Was it for crimes that I had done
    He groaned upon the tree?
    Amazing pity! grace unknown!
    And love beyond degree!



  1. Well might the sun in darkness hide
    And shut his glories in,
    When Christ, the mighty Maker died,
    For man the creature’s sin.

  2. Thus might I hide my blushing face
    While His dear cross appears,
    Dissolve my heart in thankfulness,
    And melt my eyes to tears.

  4. But drops of grief can ne’er repay
    The debt of love I owe:
    Here, Lord, I give myself away,
    ’Tis all that I can do.

      At the cross, at the cross where I first saw the light,
      And the burden of my heart rolled away,
      It was there by faith I received my sight,
      And now I am happy all the day!


Remember friends, It may be Good Friday today...but rejoice! Easter's coming!!!   Praise God!!  May your Easter be filled with joy and  many blessings.

  4. Those photos are beautiful. I have been singing songs about the cross this week too. At the Cross is one of them, along with Draw Me Nearer. So many wonderful songs to sing of Jesus' love for us at the cross.

  5. Pam, Thank you for this beautiful post! Oh how accurate the words to the old hymn "At the Cross" today. The old hymns really cut to the thick of things. The cross and resurrection changed the world.

    He is risen! He is risen indeed! Happy Easter, my friend!

    Blessings!
