THE POWER OF THE CROSS
Stuart Townend & Keith Getty

 

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.
