Love Beyond Degree : a cross stitch pattern by Lindy Stitches. Perfect for Easter and lent meditation. PDF copy.
This is verse two of the hymn "Alas and Did My Saviour Bleed" by Isaac Watts. I charted verse one as well using the same title.
With Easter fast approaching, this was exactly what I needed. When I stitch words, I meditate on them. The text is from Isaac Watt's beautiful hymn written in 1707, and they describe exactly how I feel about the cross. I was happy to sign my name in black thread----my testimony, my gratitude. Full alphabet provided so you can do the same.
