The Cradle, The Cross, The Crown

cradle, cross, cave

Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift! 2 Corinthians 9:15 (NIV)

The Cradle, The Cross, and The Crown

Each tell the Story, each show the way

Each bring salvation to a world gone astray

For the cradle, the cross, and the crown telescope

In these three we find, in Christ there is hope

The cradle revealed, in a barn He was born

Reaching out to the world, all sinners to warn

That the link to restore the lost was now here

In strips of cloth bound, God’s message was clear

The cross resulted, at the place called the Skull

The sinless One crucified, death to annul

The penalty paid, for you and for me

Stripped of all liberty, to set captives free

The cave replied, hewn from the rock

The Son of God laid, the door to unlock

Wrapped in clean linen, the burial done

But the grave couldn’t hold Him, Resurrection had come!

The cradle, the cross, the crown, all three

Good news declared, you must agree

Hope is alive, His power conquers all

And death is defeated when before Him we fall
