Over the last 30 or so years of my life, I have sung or listened to the words of the hymn When I Survey the Wondrous Cross countless times. It’s a song I have come to love. Yet at Easter time, I feel these words take on a different emphasis.


As I travel through the highs and lows of Holy Week and the differing emotions that Jesus and His disciples experienced throughout those few days, this hymn helps me to put the Easter story into context. Without Good Friday, there is no Easter Sunday. We cannot have one without the other. It is the place where both ‘sorrow and love flow mingled down.’  


As we journey along through this week, may we come to a place where we see the cross for what it is: ‘Wondrous.’
