New Song: “The Power of the Cross”

Hello church!

As Good Friday approaches, this song caught my attention as a great one to sing together as we focus on the Christ’s work on the cross.  We will be singing it together this Sunday (April 13th) and also at our Good Friday service.

Please take a look at the lyrics and embedded video below to get to know the song and an idea of the melody:

The Power of the Cross
by Keith & Kristyn Getty

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 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 suff’ring I am free
Death is crushed to death life is mine to live
Won through Your selfless love

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
