For God so loved the world, that He gave his one and only son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

John 3:16 NIV

As we look at the empty cross, we sit quietly and reflect on Jesus. We reflect on the love that came down to earth from heaven, the love that stands in the centre of time and exchanged all of our sins for His righteousness, forgiveness and peace with God. Thank you merciful God that, believing in Jesus, we receive new and eternal life; life in all the fulness of God.

Touch my heart O God divine.
Touch my heart and make it shine
Clear and bright, with love sublime.
Touch my heart and may I be
Pure, whole and committed to thee.

Touch my heart with love divine,
Touch my heart and make it thine.
Touch my heart, may I thee adore
In love and praise for evermore.

Loving, merciful God, we praise you.
