Steve Green – Embrace The Cross lyrics

I am crucified with Christ
Therefore I no longer live
Jesus Christ now lives in me
(Repeat twice)

Embrace the cross
Where Jesus suffered
Though it will cost
All you claim as yours
Your sacrifice will seem small
Beside the treasure
Eternity can’t measure
What Jesus holds in store

Embrace the love
The cross requires
Cling to the one
Whose heart knew every pain
Receive from Jesus
Fountains of compassion
Only He can fashion
Your heart to move as His

Oh, wondrous cross our desires rest in you
Lord Jesus make us bolder
To face with courage the shame and disgrace
You bore upon Your shoulder

Embrace the life
That comes from dying
Come trace the steps
The Savior walked for you
An empty tomb
Concludes Golgotha’s sorrow
Endure then till tomorrow
Your cross of suffering
Embrace the cross
Embrace the cross
The cross of Jesus

Embrace The Cross meanings

  • U
    The desire of my heart is to move beyond my own selfishness to love others and lay down my life for them. While operating in obedience to this call I was driving long distance to go help a friend care for her dying husband. I did not want to go. The relationship had been strained and I knew there could be tension. I played this song about 20 times over and over and over hearing God say to me that the cross held all I needed to make it through this difficult time. I was so inadequate on my own. "Receive from Jesus fountians of compassion... only he can fashion my heart to move as his." The love and life that Jesus' cross requires of us can be beautifully filled up with him.
