The Gospel Song/Before The Cross

Lyrics

Print-Friendly Lyrics

Holy God in love He came
Perfect man to bear my blame
On the cross He took my sin
By His death I live again

My Savior’s sacrifice paid for all my sin
So in my suffering I look to the cross again
No need, no want, no trial, no pain
Can compare to this
The wrath of God, once meant for me
Was all spent on Him

Before the cross, I humbly bow
I place my trust in the Savior
Your finished work captures my gaze
You bore the wrath, I know the grace

In my darkest hour, Your presence is my peace
In my days of joy, Your grace carries me
Jesus, my Great High Priest
The One who pleads for me
My heart is filled with faith in You
Here at Calvary on my knees

Before the Cross, I humbly bow
I place my trust all in the Savior
Your finished work captures my gaze
You bore the wrath, I know the grace

No need, no want, no trial, no pain
Can compare to this
The wrath of God, once meant for me
Was all spent on Him

Before the Cross, I humbly bow
I place my trust all in the Savior
Your finished work captures my gaze
You bore the wrath, I know the grace
