Power Of The Cross Lyrics

Power Of The Cross - Shane & Shane Lyrics

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

This, the power of the cross
Christ became sin for us
Took the blame, bore the wrath
We stand forgiven at the cross

Oh, to see the pain
Written on Your face
Bearing the awesome weight of sin
Every bitter thought
Every evil deed
Crowning Your bloodstained brow

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 victory cry

Oh, the power of the cross
Christ became sin for us
Took the blame, bore the wrath
We stand forgiven
We stand forgiven
We stand forgiven
We stand

We stand forgiven
We stand forgiven
We stand forgiven
We stand

We stand
We stand
We stand
We stand

We stand
We stand
We stand
We stand

Oh, to see my name
Written in the wounds
For through Your suffering I am free
Death is crushed to death
Life is mine to live
Won through Your selfless love

This, the power of the cross
Son of God slain for us
What a love, what a cost
We stand forgiven at the cross
