It's not conservative or liberal,
However they're defined;
It's not about interpretation,
Or the judgment of the mind;

It's the opposite of politics,
Power or prestige;
It's about a simple message,
And whether we believe.

Chorus:
It's still the cross,
It's still the blood of Calvary;
That cleanses sins,
And sets the captives free.
It's still the name,
The name of Jesus,
That has power to save the lost;
It's still the cross.

We can water down theology,
And preach a word to suit our needs;
We can justify sweet subtle lies,
That are wrapped in noble deeds;

We can alter our convictions,
To adapt to social whims;
But we cannot change the gospel,
Or the truth contained within.

Chorus

Though some may say it's man's religion,
Or ancient history;
The cross of Jesus still remains,
The price for sin that sets us free.

Chorus

    Amen! For without Jesus' blood freely shed upon the cross there would be no hope for forgiveness from my sins that would take me to hell. But Praise be to God! He loved me so much. And any who will believe. That He came from glory to pay the price that I might be forgiven and live with Him forever in Heaven! John 8: 36 says, "So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed." - Do you know where you will spend eternity?
