To the Cross, to the Grave by Raymond A. Foss

My life changed
going to the cross, to the grave
being put to death with Christ
only then could I know
the depth of his sacrifice

Going to the tomb
the waters of baptism
the Spirit descending on me
giving me power to speak
guiding my steps
that I may serve you Lord

Rising with him
saved by his holy grace
the sacrifice of my king
making me a messenger of God
sent as his servant,
doing the will of my master
going as I am sent,
that all may hear the good news
