The Glory of the Cross

Countless are the crosses that have stood on countless hills

Marked and stained with guilt and shame, the worst of us until

One single cross would stand with heaven’s best upon display

For all of us, for all of us

Countless are the scars that bear the punishment of men

Wounds that speak of sin and blame intended to condemn

For in one act of selfless love, the Savior took our place

Upon the cross, upon the cross

Oh the power of divine surrender

Oh the reach of love that took our place

Oh the mercy of the sinless Savior

This is the glory of the cross

Countless are the graves that still lay holding dust and bone

But only one has ever been found powerless to hold

The resurrected King of Kings who conquered death itself

For all of us, for all of us

Oh the power of divine surrender

Oh the reach of love that took our place

Oh the mercy of the sinless Savior

This is the glory of the cross

When brokenness meets grace, standing face to face

This is glory, this is glory

When sin is overrun and love has overcome

This is glory, this is glory

When brokenness meets grace, standing face to face

This is glory, this is glory

When sin is overrun and love has overcome

This is glory, this is glory

Oh the power of divine surrender

Oh the reach of love that took our place

Oh the mercy of the sinless Savior

This is the glory of the cross
