The Power of the Cross


    Verse 1

    Oh to see the dawn of the darkest day
    Christ on the road to Calvary
    Tried by sinful men torn and beaten then
    Nailed to a cross of wood

    Chorus 1

    This the pow’r of the cross
    Christ became sin for us
    Took the blame bore the wrath
    We stand forgiven at the cross

    Verse 2

    Oh to see the pain written on Your face
    Bearing the awesome weight of sin
    Ev’ry bitter thought ev’ry evil deed
    Crowning Your bloodstained brow

    Verse 3

    Now the daylight flees now the ground beneath
    Quakes as its Maker bows His head
    Curtain torn in two dead are raised to life
    Finished the vict’ry cry

    Verse 4

    Oh to see my name written in the wounds
    For through Your suff’ring I am free
    Death is crushed to death life is mine to live
    Won through Your selfless love

    Chorus 2

    This the pow’r of the cross
    Son of God slain for us
    What a love what a cost
    We stand forgiven at the cross
