VERSE 1:
As I look back on what I thought was living
I'm amazed at the price I choose to pay
And to think I ignored what really mattered
Cause I thought the sacrifice would be too great
But when I finally reached the point of giving in
I found the cross was calling even then
And even though it took dying to survive
I've never felt so much alive.
CHORUS:
For I am crucified with Christ and yet I live
Not I but Christ that lives within me
His Cross will never ask for more than I can give
For it's not my strength but His
There's no greater sacrifice
For I am crucified with Christ and yet I live
VERSE 2:
As I hear the Savior call for daily dying
I will bow beneath the weight of Calvary
Let my hands surrender to His piercing purpose
That holds be to the cross but sets me free
I will glory in the power of the cross
The things I thought were gain I count as loss
And with His suffering I identify
And by His resurrection power I am alive
(CHORUS)
BRIDGE:
And I will offer all I have
So that His cross is not in vain
For I found to live is Christ
And to die is truly gain
(CHORUS)

    He was crucified, i was crucified with him: he died, i died with him: he was buried, i was buried with him: he was quickened, i was quickened with him: he was raised; i was raised with him: he was and is seated with the father and i am seated with him also. So are you! According to revelation we as the overcomers are seated in the throne with him. Reigning in life now, not only a hope of a future reign, but truly reigning now.

    My sinful nature was crucified with christ on the cross... He died and i was saved. Now the holy spirit lives in me.
