The Cross Of Christ

The cross of Christ all men must view
For there salvation was bought for you
A price was paid and paid in full
A lamb was slain
The Lamb of God

I know not how, I know not where
But I know why he suffered there
It was for me
My heinous crimes
He took my place
Was crucified

It was a cross, prepared for me
My punishment, deservedly
Yet God’s own Son, so sinless He
He bore my cross
He bore my sin

There in the grave His body lay
Awake my soul, He lies no more
See how He rose, victoriously
And ever lives and prays for me

Awake my soul, my heart must sing
This is my hope eternally
For as he rose, so we shall rise
His guarantee, eternal life
