Song Lyrics:

We used to wander alone and unloved
searching for purpose where there was none
But now you’ve crowned us heirs and sons
This is the hope of the cross

we used to carry the weight of the law
hoping our good would outnumber the wrong
but grace has thrown that burden off
this is the hope of the cross

One life given for us
mercy poured out from the depths of His scars
One love conquering all
this is the hope of the cross

We used to tremble fearing our deaths
counting the days on the earth we had left
but now we walk in fearlessness
this is the hope of the cross

One life given for us
mercy poured out from the depths of His scars
One love conquering all
This is the hope of the cross
Oh death where is Your sting
Jesus has taken all you can bring
It is finished and done
This is the hope of the cross

We no longer wander
we’re claimed by His blood
We know we are loved now
the cross says how much
the cross says how much….
