He Did It All For Me

As I approached the cross
I could hardly look
At the body that was Christ
At the agony he bore
Tears welled up in my eyes
As I saw the crown of thorns
He took it all for me
 
I saw the stripes they gave’
Wrapped around His frame
I saw the nails they drove
Into His feet and hands
I saw the blood run down
How could he even talk
He did it all for me
 
I saw Him grasp for breath
Just enough to breathe
But suddenly He spoke
Words that pierced the air
Father forgive them
They know not what they do
With those words He forgave me and you
 
Forgiven.  I’m forgiven
I’m set free from guilt and shame
Forgiven.  I’m forgiven
I’m set free and I’ll praise His name
Jesus Christ my victory
He did it all for me
He did it all for you
He did it all for all.

The Love of the Cross

I could search a million miles across this earthly home
I could seek out every passion that has captured a heart
I could look for what is greatest
According to this world
But I'll never find a greater love than Jesus imparts 
 
CHORUS
He stretched out His arms for me
When they nailed Him to that tree
He bled and died to wash my sins away
What a precious gift of grace
What a precious gift of grace
 
No power is greater than the blood of the Lamb
No hope us greater than His promise to man
No one can hold Him back He's coming again 
No love is greater than the love of the cross
 
I have seen how lives have been changed when a person looks to Jesus
Turning from their sin and making Him Lord of all
When they finally hear His voice and answer His call
There's no power on earth that can do what Jesus does
No power on earth can do what Jesus does
No power on earth can do what Jesus does 
 
Chorus
 
Bridge
Nothing can separate me 
Nothing can separate me 
Nothing can separate me from His love (4X)

The Only One

Where does the power come from
Where does your grace reside
Where can I find forgiveness
At the cross. The wonderful cross

Where was I healed from sickness
Where was my shame washed away
Where is there found true freedom
At the cross. The wonderful cross

CHORUS
No other place on earth nor in heaven high above
Has God come down to man to show His eternal love
No sacrifice was greater than God giving His only son
No other one can save us. Jesus is the only one

Where did He give me new life
Where was heaven made home
Where did He gain the victory
At the tomb when He rose again

CHORUS

BRIDGE
He rose in power and glory
He rose in majesty
He rose so we could rise with Him
When He shall return again

CHORUS

The Cross is All I See

My neighbor built a rock garden
With a fountain flowing free
Some birdhouses hung above the rocks
On a pole that had a tee
A light was hoisted high
To shine for all to see
And when I looked upon it
The cross is all I see

As I travel ‘round for business
The landscape is so vast
I look out on the countryside
As long as sunlight lasts
Spread all along the roadside
Are wires dangling free
From poles with arms attached
The cross is all I see

What a wondrous gift God gave us
In an old rugged cross
A symbol of God’s grace and love for me
I travel through my neighborhood
And all around the state
Seems everywhere the cross is there to see

Open your eyes to see the cross
Each day you go outside
It’s their in all its beauty
The cross will never hide
And when you meet a friend
Tell Him of God’s great love
Tell Him about the cross you see
Gods great gift from above

The Back of the Cross

Oh what a glorious day
My sin stains are washed away
He has risen from the grave
Oh what a glorious day’

When I think of what He has done for me
To go through that pain and agony
So that I could truly be set free
Oh what a glorious day

My friend it is simple and so complete
The price that He paid for you and me
When we go through the cross it’s easy to see
That this is a glorious day

On the front of the cross is agony
On the back of the cross is peace
On the front of the cross is sorrow
On the back of the cross is joy
On the front of the cross is pain
On the back of the cross is healing
On the front of the cross is bondage
On the back of the cross is freedom
On the front of the cross is sin
On the back of the cross is forgiveness
On the front of the cross we are stained with sin
On the back of the cross we are white as snow
On the front of the cross is defeat
On the back of the cross is victory
On the front of the cross is death
On the back of the cross is eternal life
If we stay on the front of the cross, hell will be our destination
When we go through the cross, and come to the back, our destination is heaven

Come through the cross today
Ask Jesus your life to save
For you His life He gave
Oh what a glorious day

 

Look to the Cross

Look to the cross
The wonderful cross
Where sin was defeated once and for all
Look to the cross
The wonderful cross
Where Christians bow down and answer the call

Look to the cross
The wonderful cross
Where by His stripes my healing is sure
Look to the cross
The wonderful cross
Where my redemption His blood has secured

Jesus my Savior
Jesus my Lord
You gave your life
What a wonder you are
I cannot fathom
The pain you endured
You loved me so much
Jesus my Lord

Look to the cross
The wonderful cross
Where He gave His life and died in my place
Look to the cross
The wonderful cross
Where He is no more He has risen today

Jesus my Savior
Jesus my Lord
You gave your life
What a wonder you are
I cannot fathom
The pain you endured
You loved me so much
Jesus my Lord

When I Think About the Cross

When I think about the cross I think about His blood
Shed for you and me to show us His great love
His blood has cleansed our sins whiter than the snow
His blood has given us our freedom from the hell below

When I think about the cross I think about the scars
They beat Him leaving stripes upon His back and arms
They drove spikes through His hands and feet to hold Him there
They pierced His dying side with a Roman soldiers spear

When I think about the cross I think about the thorns
The cruel crown of pain was given out if scorn
The pricks into His scalp brought drops of blood and sweat
The parted His own garment as they placed their bets

When I think about the cross I think about His pain
He faced more agony than I will ever understand
The fact he did it willingly is such a mystery
Why would the Son of God give up His life for me

When I think about the cross I think about His words
He asked God to forgive us down through time the message heard
He said that it is finished salvation’s plan complete
He died a cruel death and threw Satan to defeat

When I think about the cross I think about the grave
They sealed Him up inside so that he could not escape
Yet on that third day the stone was rolled away
He rose up from the dead and defeated death that day

When I think about the cross I think about His love
He came to earth to die from His throne above
God loved us all so much he gave His only Son
He died and rose again and calls to everyone

Come see what God has done to redeem you from your sin
Come see what God has done to make you whole again
Come see what God has done to give eternal life
Will you accept His death as your redeeming sacrifice?
