Another Song

In this song it’s the challenge held in the chorus that really impacts me. ‘May I never lose the wonder, the wonder of the cross’: something I find difficult to do a lot of the time. But how important it is to remember Christ’s love, grace, mercy, wisdom and power shown through his death and resurrection, because it then affects every action and word and thought we have.

The Wonder of the Cross

O precious sight, my Savior stands
Dying for me with outstretched hands
O precious sight, I love to gaze
Remembering salvation’s day
Remembering salvation’s day

Though my eyes linger on this scene
May passing time and years not steal
The power with which it impacts me
The freshness of it’s mystery
The freshness of it’s mystery

May I never lose the wonder
The wonder of the cross
May I see it like the first time
Standing as a sinner lost
Undone my mercy and left speechless
Watching wide eyed at the cost
May I never lose the wonder
The wonder of the cross

Behold the God – Man crucified
The perfect sinless sacrifice
As blood ran down those nails and wood
History was split in two
Yes, History was split in two

Behold the empty wooden tree
His body gone, alive and free
We sing with everlasting joy
For sin and death have been destroyed
Sin and death have been destroyed

You can find the chords here, though note that it should be Capo 1 and not 3 on guitar, (Ab, I believe).
