For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this not of yourselves it is the gift of God, not of works, so that no one can boast. Ephesians 2:8-9

The Wonder of the Cross

 The Wonder of the Cross

Words and Music by Vicky Beeching

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 power with which it impacts me,
The freshness of its mystery,
The freshness of its mystery.

Chorus:  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.
