In what passes for news

I’m reminded of our sin

And all the damage it does

So I scarce can take it in

But when I look at the cross

As God’s Son died

I can see the punishment

For all our sins was supplied

.

Jesus, my Jesus

Your love covers all

You are my death and resurrection

My life eternal

.

When I hear words that hurt

Or useless cynicism 

I wonder who benefits

From this world’s criticism

But when I look at Jesus’ trial

And hear “Crucify this man!”

I know the judgement for all

Fell on Jesus, God’s Lamb

.

Jesus, my Jesus

Your love covers all

You are my death and resurrection

My life eternal

.

In life and TV dramas

I am reminded we are broken

And I can see that it leads

Only to destruction

But when I look at the grave

Where Jesus was buried

I see my sinful nature’s death

And me from it released

.

Jesus, my Jesus

Your love covers all

You are my death and resurrection

My life eternal

.

As I go about my life

I can see I have bad habits

That come from my old self

And I need to change my actions

But when I look to Jesus’ Spirit

Who now lives in me

He shows me Jesus’ way

Gives me His love, joy and peace

.

Jesus, my Jesus

Your love covers all

You are my death and resurrection

My life eternal

.

When I see abuse of power

And fear mongering

I wonder in whose capture

This world is living

But when I see Jesus rise

To God’s right hand

Taking me with Him

I know His kingdom is at hand

.

Jesus, my Jesus

Your love covers all

You are my death and resurrection

My life eternal
