the enemy comes in to ruin my day
I look to the Cross.
The Cross is the symbol of Your greatest victory,
the result of Your greatest loss.
I cannot deny its power over me.
The stain of sin
The sting of death
A new life is filled with every breath
Your life You willingly gave
You rose from the grave
To the bowels of the earth
You preached the cross
Redemption and salvation came at a cost
It is free to me and free to you
But it was not free to Him
He gave up His heavenly home
Rich man now become poor
His heavenly crown for a crown of thorns
Son of God, loves pure light
The veil was torn, morning turned to the darkest night
The heavens roared, unnumberable hosts now silent
He turned away not wanting to see His Son
As His body hung there on the Cross,
Covered with sins--past,present and future
The rebellious spirit and unseeing eye
did not truly understand why He had to die.
"Crucify him, crucify him" was their unified cry.
Heaven and earth now testify
He, Lord Jesus, is now seated on the throne.
Grace bestowed to the undeserving.
Mercy imparted for the sinner you and me
Compassion shown to the unloving
The sufficiency of God's grace know no bounds
His grace is deeper than the sea.
His loves endures forever
As do the flames of hell
Eternity awaits for the created
Will it be in heaven, with the Creator?
Or in hell apart from the Creator?
