Crabb Family – The Cross lyrics

Verse I:

To some it's just an emblem a formality.
It's a symbol that's been used so frequently.
Many blaspheme and despise.
Though it's ancient, it abides.
A shrine to death that stands for life to me.


There was a cross made for the Son of God at Calvary.
Two pieces of rough timber on a hill.
Through His hands and through His feet,
He took the nails for you and me.
Angels watched as He died for the lost.
Though He could have walked away He chose the cross.

Verse ii:

You see why this old emblem is so dear to me.
It stood for suffering, yet it brought us peace.
It bridged the gap for me.
Offered cleansing for our sins.
An icon that reminds us that we're free.


God forbid that I should ever let my memory fade.
But forever keep the cross in view for that's where I was saved.

    Without the shedding of blood there would be no remission of sin. I am thankful for the cross and for the blood that flowed from calvary for the sins of the whole world. One drop that he shed was for my sins, one stripe on his back was for my healing, one thorn on his head was for all the hurt, every step jesus took for me, it was love. Thank you lord for the precious life that you gave for me. His handmaiden.

    The cross is the #1 symbol of victory in my life. Jesus died on a cross and paid the price for my sins. Now I have victory in my life over sin and the things that would otherwise cause me to be defeated. I am a walking testimony of the healing power of the cross, the delivering power of the cross, and the restoring power of the cross. I cling to it - no matter what the world may say. I know people would call me crazy and foolish. But I would trade evrything in this world for jesus. You need to meet him - the real jesus. Ask him to come into your heart today!
