As Easter approaches, it’s good to meditate on all that Jesus did for us on the Cross. This song (also taken from the new album from Kutless called ‘Believer’) looks at the Garden of Gethsemane and the motivation behind the cross.

“Alone in a garden weeping
Begging His Father, pleading,
‘Take this cup from me,
But if it’s Your will, Father, let it be.’

All of the others sleeping
Sweat on His brow was bleeding
He could have run away but He chose to stay

This is Love; this is real;
This is more than a hope or a feeling.
It’s enough to cover us
This is Love.

After a kiss abandoned
Beaten and cursed for passion,
They lifted Him up to die but He laid down His life.

Death only wished it was stronger
The grave couldn’t hold Him longer
He rose in victory to rescue His enemies

It seems like this mercy is following me
It seems like this love has come to rescue me.” (Kutless, ‘This Is Love’)
