At The Foot Of The Cross

The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me...to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes
Isaiah 61:1,3


Now I can trade these ashes in for beauty
and wear forgiveness like a crown
Coming to kiss the feet of mercy
I lay every burden down
at the foot of the cross


Kathryn Scott is one of those great British treasures. She writes the most beautiful songs and has a voice to match. For some reason I missed this amazing song and only came across it this week. I couldn't resist sharing it with you. Praise God that we can come and trade our ashes for His beauty. We might feel unworthy, but that's fine! He wants us to come and make that exchange, because it's already been paid for. A crown is waiting for us.
