The Power of the Cross

Just heard this song a couple of days ago for the first time.  Had to share it.

Hope you enjoy.

The Power Of The Cross

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:
This, the pow’r 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.
Ev’ry bitter thought,
Ev’ry 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 vict’ry cry.

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.

FINAL CHORUS:
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.

  1. Thank you for sharing this. I knew the song, but had not seen this video.

    The Gettys’ music is wonderful for congregational singing. Their web site is gettymusic.com. Similar is the music of Stuart Townsend. The songs are singable and have profound theology.

  2. Great song that brings the glory of the gospel before our eyes afresh! We need all of these reminders that we can get!
