The Power of The Cross (Instrumental).


“….play skillfully on the strings….” (Psalm 33: 3)

Here’s an instrumental I had the joy of re: recording this week.   Words and Music are written by Keith Getty and Stuart.  You can find the entire song below.  This is truly a Gospel-saturated song.  I shed tears one more time this morning for this 2nd largest unreached nation that does not yet know “The Power of The Cross,”  where sinners stand forgiven.  Please pray, intercede, give, come and serve with us, support the work of cross-cultural missions.

Lyrics:
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.
