The mystery of the cross

Hands that created the earth and the sea
Those were the hands that were nailed to a tree
Tower of strength, God of infinite might
Dragged through Jerusalem without a fight

The mystery of the cross 
that you would choose to save those who were lost 
It’s incomprehensible what you have done 
The fathomless love of the Son. 

God of all majesty, glorious above
Scorned and despised by the ones that he loved
Friend of the sinner, and friend of the lame
Tortured and beaten for taking the blame


Till suddenly, gloriously, rose from the dead
giving us hope again, just like he said
He died to forgive us and paid for our sin
but rose to be with us and welcome us in


(C) Matthew Dawkins 2006
