Love Beyond Degree : a cross stitch pattern by Lindy Stitches. Perfect for Easter and lent meditation.
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.

I recently purchased both of these charts and can't wait to get started on them. I am looking at putting both on the same fabric with the hearts across the top and blue flowers across the
bottom. This song is frequently song on Sunday morning worship not just at Easter, and this is a very dear song as I have been bought with blood. Thank you for should lovely charts. This will be added to my Hymn Wall, as I am also doing Heartstring Samplery Sunday Series.
I bought this, and the companion chart, Alas And Did My Savior Bleed, and the day I received them I could not stop singing this hymn. It was one we sang almost every Sunday when attending church. I can't wait to stitch this up. Thank you for a precious chart!
So glad to get this chart and the companion one with the start of the message!
I received the chart I ordered in a very timely manner. It was packaged well and I am delighted to have this chart to stitch.
