There Stands a Cross
(no author name given)

For all those who say Jesus was just a great teacher
like the leaders of other world religions–
THERE STANDS A CROSS

For all those who say there is no punishment for sin–
THERE STANDS A CROSS

For all those who say we can work our way into favor with God–
THERE STANDS A CROSS

For all those who seek a new beginning
And cleansing from sin–
THERE STANDS A CROSS

For all those who seek forgiveness forever–
THERE STANDS A CROSS

For all those who seek to witness grace on display
And love redefined–
THERE STANDS A CROSS

HALLELUJAH FOR THE CROSS!

HE DID – HE CAN – HE WILL
by Martin Luther

The God that stopped the sun on high,
And sent the manna from the sky,
Laid flat the walls of Jericho,
And put to flight old Israel’s foe.
Why can’t He answer prayer today,
And drive each stormy cloud away?
Who turned the water into wine,
And healed a helpless cripple’s spine–
Commanded tempests, “Peace be still.”
And hungry multitudes did fill,
His power is just the same today.
So why not labor, watch, and pray?
He conquered in the lion’s den,
Brought Lazarus back to life again,
He heard Elijah’s cry for rain,
And freed the sufferers from pain.
If He could do those wonders then,
Let’s prove our mighty God again.
Why can’t the God who raised the dead,
Gave little David Goliath’s head–
Cast out the demons with a word,
Yet sees the fall of one wee bird–
Do signs and miracles today,
In that same good old-fashioned way?
HE CAN! He’s just the same today.
