To the presence
Of our God –
The One who makes
The earth, and sea,
The One who shares
Our lives of pain
The One who gave us
His dear Son –
Surely the Lord is in this place, and I wasn’t even aware of it! (Genesis 28:16; NLT).
There is only one God, the Father, who created everything, and we live for him (1 Corinthians 8:6; NLT).
In all their suffering he also suffered (Isaiah 63:9; NLT).
Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn (Romans 12:15).
God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life (John 3:16; RSV).
This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased (Matthew 17:5; NIV).
The Son of Man must die, as the Scriptures declared long ago (Mark 14:21; NLT).
