Resurrection and New Life Day 20 – Resurrection Song – “Remember What It Cost” by JUDAH.
(Song written by Judah Akers)

Remember What It Cost

God, Your heart from the beginning
Every intention so easy to see
There You are in the garden
I am hiding and You’re chasing after me
And Your thoughts never changing
Always breaking all the shame that covers me
You gave Your son to die undeserving
To carry my burden and erase the veil between

And what can express what’s running through Your head?
As You watched Him on the tree on that hill
I’ll never forget all that You did
‘Cause You knew with His last breath
All of my sin would go with Him
And though You made it easy for me
How heavy was the cross?
Father, this gift You’ve given
I’ll remember what it cost

Jesus Christ, from the beginning
Every intention so easy to see
There You are in the garden
You were crying not My will but Yours through Me
For You knew You’d be returning
And sending Your Spirit out for all who believe
So here I am so undeserving
But You made me worthy to draw near to His feet

I can’t comprehend the nails through Your flesh
And get to experience the freedom it gives
I’ll never forget the stripes on Your skin
And the healing I’m receiving
All because of Him
Though You made it easy for me
How heavy was the cross?
Jesus, this life You’ve given
I’ll remember what it cost

Right when the Devil thought he won
All of my shackles came undone
‘Cause You’ve risen from the grave
Now I am free forever
Right when the Devil thought he won
All our veils were up and gone
Now right here in this moment
Heaven’s all around us
Right when the Devil thought he won
All my shame was come undone
‘Cause You’ve risen from the grave
Now I am Yours forever
Right when the Devil thought he won
All our sins were up and gone
Jesus, You sealed and locked our fate
All in a moment

This song stands out to me because of the way it takes us from garden to garden to garden (Eden to Gethsemane to the empty tomb). The first garden points out our failure—our sin against God. The second garden points out His sacrifice—Jesus bowing to His Father’s will despite the cost. The third garden points out His victory—Jesus rising again and forever putting our sin away. When we think of these things, it truly reminds us that all we brought to the table was our sin. Our salvation is simple, “easy for me.” We trust in His finished work, that He died for us and rose again to declare the victory. But what a cost it was, both to the Father and to His only Son. We can’t help but wonder, how heavy—both figuratively and literally—was the cross? What a price was paid! May I never forget the cost.
