Celebrate the Cross

VERSE
The most important day on Earth
That rugged cross upon Golgotha
A burden heavier than gold
Worth more than any weight of silver
Supreme the sacrifice Christ made
God’s mercy raining down from Heaven
The gap was bridged—the debt was paid
Love spared eternal separation

CHORUS
I celebrate the cross
Hope has triumphed over loss
Ever mindful of the cost
I celebrate the cross
The stone is rolled away
There is vict’ry o’er the grave
All because of Calvary—my Savior cared for me
I celebrate the cross

VERSE
Peace abides within my heart
My fate is sealed now and forever
Safely cradled in His arms
Strength for the storms of life to weather
Love un-com-pre-hen-da-ble
Bruised and beaten body shattered
Bore my sorrows nail by nail
As if I only to Him mattered

REPEAT CHORUS

BRIDGE
Oh death where is your sting
You are defeated by my King
Though you may for me one day wait
You’ll see me rise again

REPEAT CHORUS (2X)

TAG
I celebrate the Cross
I celebrate the Cross
