Grandmother's sun porch was
A gathering place for many things
Us kids would gather round her chair
We couldn't wait for her to sing

She sang those old sweet songs
About the love of Jesus
And His 'Amazing Grace'
Through those songs she taught us!

She sang of how He took our place
On a cross, on a hill far away!
She taught us with the verses she sang
I remember them to this day

After she sang till we were filled
She opened up God's word
Her sweet voice began to read
And we were transferred

Into another time, and another place,
We saw the old things pass away
And a new heaven and a new earth
The dawning of a brand new day

We saw Jesus grow
In wisdom and in grace
Saw Him teaching in the Temple
Taking His destined place
 

We saw Him walk on the water
As He came to them in the ship
Saw Peter step out to meet Him
And sink when his faith did slip

Followed Him to the garden
As he prepared to take our place
We saw Him beat so badly
We couldn't recognize his beautiful face

We walked up the hill to Calvary
Watched Him stumble and fall on the way
Under the heavy burden
Of the cross He'd hang on that day

We watched as they drove the spikes
Into His Precious Hands
And stood the cross upright
To be the sacrifice God did demand

Many tears we cried
As we realized our sin
And knew the blood He shed
Cleansed every stain within

We learned so much
Gathered round Grandmother's chair back then
But best of all we learned
That Jesus died to pay for our sin

Scripture: Isaiah 53:11~12

He shall see of the travail of his soul,
and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge
shall my righteous servant justify many;
for he shall bear their iniquities. Therefore
 will I divide him a portion with the great,

and he shall divide the spoil with the strong;
because he hath poured out his soul unto
death: and he was numbered with the
transgressors; and he bare the sin of many,
and made intercession for the transgressors.
