We Remember the Cross

Lyrics

Verse 1

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 

 

Verse 2

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

 

Verse 3

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 

 

Tag

We remember the cross

We remember the cross

For the word of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
