Sunday Song — The Wonder of the Cross

I love the message of this song. It’s so easy to get comfortable in our faith and take the cross for granted.  May it never be.

“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 pow’r with which it impacts me,
The freshness of its mystery,
The freshness of its 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 by 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
Yes, sin and death have been destroyed.

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 by mercy and left speechless
Watching wide-eyed at the cost,
May I never lose the wonder,
The wonder of the cross.
