To the cross I look, to the cross I cling
Of its suffering I do drink
Of its work I do sing

For on it my Savior both bruised and crushed
Showed that God is love
And God is just

Chorus:
At the cross You beckon me
You draw me gently to my knees, and I am
Lost for words, so lost in love,
I�m sweetly broken, wholly surrendered

What a priceless gift, undeserved life
Have I been given
Through Christ crucified

You�ve called me out of death
You�ve called me into life
And I was under Your wrath
Now through the cross I�m reconciled

Chorus:

In awe of the cross I must confess
How wondrous Your redeeming love and
How great is Your faithfulness

(2x�s)
Chorus:

    The most heart-wrenching pouring out of thankfulness I've ever heard in a song. Beautiful images are created with his words, bringing tears and a hunger for more of his grace while I'm on my knees at the foot of the cross. The holy spirit has given you such powerful words to bring us to our knees, jeremy. Your voice is amazing, your talent is amazing. Thank you for this song. I listen to it over and over and over. May god continue to richly bless you for richly blessing me.

    I am sweetly broken by christ, he allows us to use or free will then we forget that he was broken for us. Yet he still embraces us with love and forgivness. He calls us out of death and all the misery of sin, he calls into life eternal with him. His glory and mercy has no bounds. He loves us so much, he was bruised and crushed when it shoud have been us. He took our punishment yet he was silent. My love for him is so deep and amazing that my heart is sweetly broken. Thank you jesus for you tender mercies and your abiding love. We give you all the honor and praise and when we close our eyes to pray, we can reach out and touch your face. I long to be in your arms, and see your smile. I love you so much. Thank you for saving my soul.

    We can not be fair weather fans of christ. We must cling to the suffering of the cross and hold to the tennents of our faith. Being faithful faith filled and signing examples of how christians should be at all times not just when its convienient or easy. Can you honestly be drawn to your knees so lost in love sweetly broken and wholly surrendered? I pray earnestly for the day I am drawn into jesus' embrace and hear the words "well done my good and faithful servant"
