FFH Album: Have I Ever Told You Track: On My Cross
On My Cross Lyrics
"Like 'I'm Amazed', 'On My Cross' was inspired by a series of sermons by Max Lucado surrounding the crucifixion. It is a realization that Jesus was actually carrying the cross that I deserved to carry. It was my nails and my crown of thorns that was causing Him the pain He felt."
How wide is Your love That You would stretch Your arms And go around the world And why for me would a Savior's cry be heard
I don't know Why You went where I was meant to go I don't know Why You love me so
Those were my nails That was my crown That pierced Your hands and your brow Those were my thorns Those were my scorns Those were my tears that fell down And just as You said it would be You did it all for me After You counted the cost You took my shame, my blame On my cross
How deep is Your grace That you could see my need And chose to take my place And then for me, these words I'd hear You say
Father no Forgive them for they know not what they do I will go Because I love them so
