Dear Cross

Dear Cross,
Remind me of the suffering my Saviour took for me,
Show me his hands of mercy and his feet of compassion that was nailed to you,
Tell me of the crown of thorns that pierced his brow,
And his saving blood that trickled down your back,
Drops of it, one at a time,
To save mankind from sin,
How did you feel, O Cross,
When my Saviour breathe his last?
What else did you hear when he prayed “Father, forgive them,”
Did you hear him whisper my name
Dear Cross, remind me once again,
Of the sacrifice and death he took in my place that I may have life with Him eternally.

Power of the Cross (by Stuart Townend and Keith 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 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, 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.
