Love Lustres at Calvary

 There is a beautiful prayer in The Valley of Vision entitled “Love Lustres at Calvary.” The worshipper piles up descriptions of what Christ endured on the cross for our sake. I’ve paraphrased some of it’s content here:

Christ was…

Cast off that I might be welcomed

Stripped that I might be clothed

Wounded that I might be healed

Athirst that I might drink

Tormented that I might be comforted

Shamed that I might be glorified

Cast into darkness that I might have light

Crowned with thorns that I might be crowned with righteousness

Killed that I might live
