We thank You, Lord, that Your Son, Jesus, died – so that we might live. He was forsaken by You – so that we might live with You. We think of Jesus, suffering for us – “In my place, condemned, He stood.” We think of the blessing that He brings to us: “Sealed my pardon with His blood.” Here-and-now, there’s a song of praise, arising in our hearts – but there’s more than that: We look forward to the full glory of Your heavenly and eternal glory: “When He comes, our glorious King, all His ransomed home to bring, then anew this song we’ll sing: Alleluia! What a Saviour!”
