Track Name: Stricken, Smitten And Afflicted
Stricken, smitten, and afflicted,

See Him dying on the tree!

’Tis the Christ by man rejected;

Yes, my soul, ’tis He, ’tis He!

’Tis the long expected prophet,

David’s Son, yet David’s Lord;

By his Son, God now has spoken,

’Tis a true and faithful Word.

Tell me, ye who hear Him groaning,

Was there ever grief like His?

Friends through fear His cause disowning,

Foes insulting his distress:

Many hands were raised to wound Him,

None would interpose to save;

But the deepest stroke that pierced Him

Was the stroke that Justice gave.

Ye who think of sin but lightly,

Nor suppose the evil great,

Here may view its nature rightly,

Here its guilt may estimate.

Mark the Sacrifice appointed!

See Who bears the awful load!

’Tis the Word, the Lord’s Anointed,

Son of Man, and Son of God.

Here we have a firm foundation,

Here the refuge of the lost.

Christ the Rock of our salvation,

Christ the Name of which we boast.

Lamb of God for sinners wounded!

Sacrifice to cancel guilt!

None shall ever be confounded

Who on Him their hope have built.
☩ Thomas Kelly (1804)
Track Name: Jesus Is Risen
That same day,
Two men walked up a road –
Posing over questions of a man that they once knew,
For they thought he would be their savior.

That same day,
One man walked up that road –
Joining the other two,
He quickly got involved in their discussion.

So they talked and they questioned and he answered them,
With scripture and passage proving things that had happened all too recently.

That same day,
Three men sat at a table –
The two men sat there staring,
As the one blessed the food,
And broke the bread.

When suddenly their eyes were made wide open,
Open to a man they thought had been long dead.
Yes, suddenly their eyes were made wide open,
Open to a man they thought had been long dead.

Jesus had risen,
Risen from the grave,
Risen from the gave just that day.

Jesus had risen,
Risen from the grave and broken all the bonds that ever held him,
That same day.

Today,
We walk up a long road –
Posing over questions,
Of a life that gives no answers in a world that rarely bares a clue.

But this same day,
Jesus walks up this road –
And he joins us,
Yes, he joins us,
Yes, he joins me and you!

Jesus has risen,
Risen from the grave,
Risen from the gave just today!

Jesus has risen,
Risen from the grave,
And broken all the bonds that ever held him –
Today!
