[Jesus said] For just as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. (Matthew 12:40 ESV)
Hymn ELH 336:5 Of My Life the Life
From the heart, I thank Thee, Jesus,
For the vast, stupendous load,
Which Thou bearest to release us
From the dreadful wrath of God:
For Thy cruel death and passion,
Agony and sore temptation,
For Thy sharp and bitter pain,
Thanks forever, Lord, Amen!
Jesus, my Savior, thank You for taking the punishment I deserve, even suffering the torments of hell on the cross in my place. Amen.
