Jesus Christ: Blood of Salvation

My faith awakens in blazing light of salvation enabled
Beaming from my Saviour hanging on a cross
That on Calvary's rugged grounds stand
Forever a symbol of God's faithfulness fulfilled
On creation's saddest day, when
Even in gloomiest darkness, exalted was awakening, as
Father and Son walked a solemn path
Through ancient sacrifice of covenant
Long established, in time ordained, fulfilled-

When obedient Lamb of God sacrificed by ignorant brutes
In eternal covenant fulfilled grand destinty of Creator and Created
His glory forever restored
Very Heavens bespoke a mighty deed of dread
Violated earth torn open in anguish in mighty quake
In Jerusalem was ancient temple curtain torn open
As worthy Blood most sacrosanct tore a way into waiting light
Long destined presently realised,
My Saviour torn into pieces for man's relief-

Humbly accomplished in a place choosen long before time
These holy grounds of profound dreadful deed
Innocent bearer of accreted curse borne without relief
This burden lifted by frail shoulders mangled
He, gentle in appearance benign father of all saints
This gentle soul of royalty and divinity bearing all that is unclean
He who has in suffering become graced blessings unlimited for eternity;
True King most royal, flailed, hanged, alone on a hilltop
Noble King, heritage of grace enabled, enabler most gracious-

Heaving out of aching lungs one final breath,
My Lord rolled bloodied eyes up, to
His Father and said "it is finished"
From Heaven the father looked down and affirmed
"It is finished, indeed" forever, my son is King
A priest forever in the order of Melchizedek,
He who intercedes with compassion for frail humanity
Enabling a way to grand inheritance long ordained
Your suffering has enabled grandest provision-

The blessings of grace that had long been held in store
Loosened by mighty anguish unto mankind
Jesus, lover of my soul, most beloved
Most grateful am I to you for the gift of life
In your life given
Thou royal seed of Abraham promised
Sewing salvations crop in tears
On hard grounds desolate
Behold your harvest of joy enabled-

This is life;
Freed from darkness
Ushered into true life in light of redemption
Of life reborn away from afflicted world
Light that walked quietly among men in darkness
Some who were given sight walked in blossoming blaze
Setting alight a fire inborn of Holy Spirit sent forth
A tinder are we who wait to be brought alive
When His willing spirit most holy sets us alive in His light-

In tears of Angels sharing His anguish
Glorious King of Angels hanged on coarse lumber,
Shredded in agony most agonising
Sins and darkness washed away
That in blood covenant of gentle lamb of God
I passed through precious blood of JHVH's son
before mighty gathering of Heavenly hosts
These mighty presence of Angels-

Heavy heart lightened
Passing by grace enabled
Presence of purity most holy
Light of life that awakens new man
Coming into being in His divine being
Grateful is my being, my whole being
To be so favoured before my Saviour
Long before I knew Him, grace was a given
His love for me was profound in depth-

Life's darkness in a moment cleansed
Ancient light from very beginning
Newness of life defined, when joy on a dark hill top
Proclaimed salvation's deed sealed for eternity hitherto
As sorrow's burdens in a moment is cast off
Lifted forever are afflictions' ancient curse
Grace enabled in precious blood come into being
Calvary's cross borne for me
A light load of grace revealed, received in gratitude
Upon willing shoulders lightly laid-

From this day in a moment enabled
I have a master, my gracious Saviour most glorious
David's Son, Messiah,who with blood most precious
Has purchased salvation out of love
I, redeemed in glorious exaltation
Tears of worry wiped away
Brilliant was the affirmation of Angelic hosts
Acclaiming in mighty praise the Lord's deed confirmed
When salvations task completed light came among men-

I praise thee Great God of Wonders
Lord of lords, Jehovah, thou compassionate enabler
For a sinner saved
Cleansed in glorious Saviour's blood
My life forever to Him willed
As faith born in mighty name of gentle saviour
Nurtured in blood most excellent in purity
Feeds upon renewal's hope
Sanctity of God's wellspring of never ceasing grace-

My faith looks up to that ancient imprint of grace enabled
Thou Lamb of God forever freedoms symbol upon Calvary,
O Saviour Divine;
To you I pray a proclamation of gratitude,
You who takes all my sins away,
Indeed all of creations sins
When your light descended upon my sin benumbed mind
Setting alight waiting spirit bedrock of soul in me by your Holy Spirit
When my heart yielded-

O let me from this day
Be wholly Thine!
Were I to walk through these dark mazes of life
Order my steps in your light
Make a straight path for me
For your sacrifice's sake, my Lord, my Saviour
My griefs dissipate in this rebirth of joy
In these aeonian light of life spreading
For eternity I am established before my Father and my Saviour-

Your presence encircles, filling me, all round me,
My sure guide, certain in assurance
Life's darkness has turned to brilliant day,
Sorrow's fears washed away in an instant,
Liberating incrementally from this day, for evermore
I am wholly Thine! Hallelujah, all praise arises to thee, David's pride
Praise holy gentle Lamb for sinners redeemed;
Give Him glory, all ye people,
For His Blood has washed away ancient stains-
