And He kneeled down,
and prayed, saying...
"Father, if Thou be willing,
remove this cup from Me:
nevertheless not My will,
but Thine, be done."
(Luke 22:42 KJV)

Had Christ refused to bear the cross
And fill the Father's plan,
Perhaps a new way could have been
Prepared for fallen man.
Yet Jesus chose to set aside

Earth's trappings that would bind,
And He alone is worthy now:
Saviour of all mankind.
Throughout the ages He will be
Eternal Sovereign Lord,
Rejoicing for eternity

...He chose Heaven's reward!


"Looking unto Jesus
the author and finisher of our faith;
who for the joy that was set before Him
endured the cross, despising the shame,
and is set down at the right hand
of the throne of God."
(Hebrews 12:2 KJV)

I hate to think where we would be today if not for the sacrifice of Christ. I doubt that I would have much hope of salvation.
