I will love you for the cross
And I will love you for the cost
Man of sufferings
Bringer of my peace
You came into a world of shame
And paid the price we could not pay
Death that brought me life
Blood that brought me home
Death that brought me life
Blood that brought me home
Chorus:
And I love you for the cross
I'm overwhelmed by the mystery
I love you for the cost
That Jesus you would do this for me
When you were broken, you were beaten,
You were punished, I go free
You were wounded and rejected
In your mercy - I am healed
Jesus Christ the sinners friend
Does this kindness know no bounds
With your precious blood you have purchased me
Oh the mystery of the cross
You were punished you were crushed
But that punishment has become my peace
Yes that punishment has become my peace
Chorus
By your wounds I am healed
For the cross, for the cross, for the cross I thank you
Oh Lord, for the cross, for the cross
Chorus
