Series

This Series, Written In Red, is broken up into four sets of prints, the first of which is the presentation of the song written by George Jensen which is presented on the Hymns and Songs page. The prints are actually taken directly from two songs:

  • Written in Red
  • Nothing But the Blood

Both verses of Written in Red are utilized and the bridge over to the refrain of Nothing But the Blood in included.  The second song is a Hymn written by Robert Lowry.

The First Design | Original Prints

With this first design, being able to utilize a photograph in the background was important.  Small roses were used, which are boutineers actually, which carry with them the deep red which most people can associate with crimson. Both verses are presented in the following:

Verse 1

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

Verse 2

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

Chorus

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

By looking at each individual design, it is easy to see that the words of a phrase are taken from the song lyrics and paired up with a verse of Scripture.

The First Set | Verse One

This set of six designed images are taken from the first verse of Written In Red.

  1. Letters of Crimson
    “Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.”

  3. On a Hillside
    “And he bearing his cross went forth into a place called the place of a skull, which is called in the Hebrew Golgotha: Where they crucified him, and two other with him, on either side one, and Jesus in the midst.”

  5. For You and For Me Jesus Died
    “Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross; And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.”
    Colossians 2:14-15 | King James Version
  6. Love’s Greatest Story

  2. God Wrote His Love

  2. Oh Precious Is The Flow
