With outstretched arms
Jesus showed us His abundant love
as He hung from His limbs on Calvary
His arms were truly the branches.
Jesus Christ is the Tree of Life.
He defeated sin and darkness
and brought the world His light.
Thank You, Jesus, for Your amazing love.
Thank You, Jesus, for Your amazing grace.
Thank You, Jesus, for the sacrifice You made
bleeding to death at the stake for my sake.
Can you imagine the day you see the face of God
and are welcomed by His warm embrace?
Can you imagine being in the presence
of the One whose love is so great?
Can you imagine the day you meet True Love
and are welcomed into His outstretched arms?
Can you imagine what you’ll say or do?
If you’ll be ecstatic or fall apart?
How wide would you open your arms
if someone asks how much you love the Lord?
Would they be as outstretched as His were for you
the day He sacrificed His life for yours?
This is real love – not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins.
