I come to you Lord open and bleeding,
Raw with anguish, and once again you
Comfort me, You....my place of refuge
You understand, for you too have bled

And as I think of it now, I'm aware of the
Real drops of blood that you've shed, and
I admit that knowing this makes me feel
A little foolish, thinking that my bleeding

Could compare with your suffering....yet
You know that I'm human, as I know that
YOU are GOD.

1 Corinthians 15:3-4 -- For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
Romans 8:16-18 -- The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:
17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.
18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.
