The Cross Forever Stands
VERSE 1 It was Your Love that set us free indeed How Your blood washes over me All the shame You bore The price You paid In my sin You died for me CHORUS 1 Oh praise The King Who is to come Praise The God from heaven above At Calvary Your love displayed VERSE 2 It was His love That held my Savior there The Son of God upon the cross The final breath He breathed Was my victory O come rejoice For our King is here CHORUS 2 Oh praise The Lamb who was slain He is risen from the grave Come and drink the cup of life VERSE 3 Come take His bread His body broken for you Come and kneel at the foot of The Cross The Cross forever stands in victory We will not forget Your sacrifice CHORUS 4 Oh Sing His Name The Savior King Crucified to set us free Celebrate The Risen King I wrote this song for my church on Easter Sunday. Remembering the death of our Savior just brought me in awe and tears. I picked up my guitar and started strumming chords. I knew I wanted it to have a “hymn-like” sound. So as I started writing I decided to name it “The Cross Forever Stands” because no matter how guilty, discouraged, or faithless I may feel, He has already won. He has the final victory.
