The Lamb that was slain from the foundation of the world (Rev 13:8).

Southern Cross                                         Golgotha

He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not. Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. (Isa 53:3-4)

The Cross

When I look to the Cross, I see more than an image.
A Man who was God, who's blood was rare vintage.

He was battered and bruised, He suffered and bled.
His blood was holy and pure, yet it had to be shed.

He died for each person in thought and by name.
His suffering, though brutal, was not done in vain.

For the Cross is the place where tears can be shed,
for in seeing Him hang we will never be dead.

For upon the Cross, death was defeated.
Forgiveness, cleansing, healing is completed.

Because He suffered the grief and the pain,
He knows me well and calls me by name.

I love You so much Lord for all you have done.
It's amazing to me how the Cross makes us One

I could never repay the debt that I owe,
but the Cross tells me You still love me so.

All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth. He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken. And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth. Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand.
(Isa 53:5-10)
