Today I want to carry on with my series about the music that touches my heart. In Music to Touch Our Hearts I listed a number of pieces of music which always pull at my heart-strings, and number eight in my list was the beautiful song Written In Red.

This will not be the first blog post in which I’ve talked about being emotional because of the song Written In Red – You can read my previous blog post about this song in An Emotional Day.

Please enjoy listening to my friend Olwyn Mathie singing Written In Red (it is included in the album The Call of the Righteous by Bellshill Band of the Salvation Army):

Written in Red

In letters of crimson, God wrote His love
On the hillside so long, long ago;
For you and for me Jesus died,
And love’s greatest story was told.

I love you, I love you
That’s what Calvary said;
I love you, I love you,
I love you, written in red.

Down through the ages, God wrote His love
With the same hands that suffered and bled;
Giving all that he had to give,
A message so easily read.

I love you, I love you,
That’s what Calvary said;
I love you, I love you,
I love you.

Oh, precious is the flow, that makes me white as snow;
No other fount I know, nothing but the blood of Jesus.

I love you, I love you
That’s what Calvary said;
I love you, I love you,
I love you, written in Red.

So what is it about this song that gets to me? Well whenever I doubt whether God loves me or not, this song is all I need to give me a real reminder that God loves me today and every day all because of what He sacrificed all those years ago at Calvary.

Jesus suffered so much pain and agony on the cross, so how could I ever doubt His love for me!

If ever you need reminding of just how much God loves you, listen to this song again – I’d suggest closing your eyes and imagining just how Jesus felt – Doing that is what makes me get all emotional.
