No More I Bear the Crushing Load

This is a very rough demo of the offertory I wrote for our worship service last week. It’s based on the sermon text, Romans 5:1-11. (And by “very rough” I mean wrong notes, head cold, I can’t really play slide, the whole nine yards. This is what we call me being “vulnerable.”)

No More I Bear The Crushing Load

No more I bear the crushing load
Of guilt upon my brow
No more I fear the killing blow
Of justice’ word come down
Instead my Father’s voice rings loud
And sweet upon my ear
The close of strife, the words of peace
My soul has longed to hear

Justified now by Jesus’ blood
And one with him by faith
No trial can come across my road
But points me to his face
My hope cannot be put to shame
My God with me is pleased
His Spirit tells his love to me
And for me intercedes

When I was weak and helpless yet
And under curse of God
Jesus came down from heav’n and shed
For me his precious blood
If by his death I’m reconciled
Set free from sin and strife
Much more I now rejoice in him
Who saves me by his life

  1. Amen. I like it. It makes me want to be on a front porch, in a rocking chair, looking down a long dirt road.

  2. Dave Hall says:

    Love it. Head cold makes you sound like Greg Brown. You got any tabs you could pass along to a brother?
    peace

  3. I had NO IDEA you wrote that until Sarabeth told me the other day – I loved it on Sunday. You and Dave did a great job.

  4. Still impressive…headcold and all.
