We Remember the Cross

This worship song isn’t one I’ve sung very often, but maybe I should. The cross stands before us as the ultimate symbol of hope and grace. We can rest in its shadow through every trial, knowing they are producing endurance and steadfastness. When the storm begins to blow, may we count it joy as we remember the cross.

Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing (James 1:2-4).

WE REMEMBER THE CROSS

Bearing it on His shoulder
Falling beneath its weight
The cross, a cruel companion
Ushered the Lamb to His fate
Willing to take this journey
Willing to drink this cup
Willing to suffer greatly
Willing to be lifted up

Chorus
May we count it joy
When we suffer loss
Jesus, Lamb of God
We remember the cross

The Father’s plan accomplished
The Son obeyed His will
My sin, my hate, my sorrow
He bore it all on that hill
A Priest who sympathizes
A King who understands
A Lord who has provided
A Friend with wounds in His hands

In every trying moment
In every painful sigh
In every teardrop forming
We have a hope in this life
Through Christ we claim our blessing
For Him we run the race
Let us be found professing
There is a balm full of grace

We remember the cross
We remember the cross
