Perfect Love, Wondrous Love

     But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they went to the tomb, taking the spices they had prepared. And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they went in they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. While they were perplexed about this, behold, two men stood by them in dazzling apparel. And as they were frightened and bowed their faces to the ground, the men said to them, “Why do you seek the living among the dead? He is not here, but has risen. Remember how he told you, while he was still in Galilee, that the Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men and be crucified and on the third day rise.” And they remembered his words, and returning from the tomb they told all these things to the eleven and to all the rest. Now it was Mary Magdalene and Joanna and Mary the mother of James and the other women with them who told these things to the apostles, but these words seemed to them an idle tale, and they did not believe them. But Peter rose and ran to the tomb; stooping and looking in, he saw the linen cloths by themselves; and he went home marveling at what had happened.
    Luke 24:1-12

Perfect Love, Wondrous Love 
Gloria Godbee 
My precious Jesus knew no sin;
Yet so that I could enter in,
He bore my sins upon the tree,
Becoming sin for me.
What a display of matchless grace!
He gazed into this sinner’s face
And chose to take my sin and shame
So I could share His name. 
He in very nature God—But then
He took the form of mortal man.
What agony He suffered sore
And on the cross my sorrows bore.
O humble servant of mankind,
Upon that rugged cross I find
Rare beauty millions fail to see,
For you suffered there for me.
  O Perfect Love, O Wondrous Love,
Upon my knees I fall.
I cry Holy, Holy, Holy;
You are Lord of all! 

Have a blessed and joyful Resurrection Day as you celebrate the most significant event in history,
