The Look

The lyrics and tune of this song (download song) really touched my heart, to realise the kind of pain and agony that Jesus had felt on the Cross. That moment was not one which anyone of us could understood easily. Jesus died so that you and I can live. This song describes that look and that moment of God's Son hanging on the Cross.

I saw one hanging on a tree
In agony and blood
Who fixed His loving eyes on me
As near His Cross I stood
And never till my dying breath
Will I forget that look
It seemed to charge me with His death
Though not a word He spoke

Forever etched upon my mind
Is the look of Him who died
The Lamb I crucified
And now my life sing the praise
Of the pure atoning grace
That looked on me and gladly took my place

My conscience felt and owned the guilt
And plunged me in despair
I saw my sins His blood had spilt
And helped to nail Him there
But with a second look He said
"I freely all forgive
This blood is for your ransom paid
I died that you might live"

Thus while His death my sin displays
For all the world to view
Such is the mystery of grace
It seals my pardon too
With pleasing grief and mournful joy
My spirit now is filled
That I should such a life destroy
Yet live by Him I killed
