LYRICS

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: 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 
Every bitter thought
Every 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 suffering I am free 
Death is crushed to death
Life is mine to live
Won through Your selfless love
