Redeemed with love

SO when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

1 Corinthians 15:54-57

CHRISTIAN men truly should bow to the hallowed rood in the name of Jesus. … We ever honour it for the honour of Christ, who redeemed us with love through it, for which we thank him ever in life.

Aelfric of Eynsham (c.955-c.1010).

**

BY thy precious Cross, O Christ, thou hast put the devil to shame, and by thy Resurrection, thou hast left the sting of sin without bite, and saved us from the gates of death. Unto thee give we glory, O Only-begotten.

SHOUT unto God, all the earth.
O sing praises to his name; give glory to his praise.
Say unto God, How awful are thy works!
Come and behold the works of God;
he is terrible in his counsels beyond the children of men.
(Psalm 65/66)
