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?
