Hallelujah for the Cross

I love what this song says to us. It’s not just what Jesus did for us, or what He did as us, but what He did to us. It means freedom from our tragic flaw and it means life everlasting. It means love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control freely given to us from the Fountainhead of Life. It means that Jesus made the way for us to enter into His very life! The same life He has enjoyed in the Father from eternity. He has won us with His kindness and love. Hallelujah for the Cross!

Here are the lyrics:  

Hallelujah for the Cross
written by Ben Glover | Chris McClarney | Jeff Pardo

I would be hopeless without Your goodness
I would be desp’rate without Your love
Slave to the darkness
If it wasn’t for the cross

You have won me with Your kindness
Chased me down when I was lost
Where would I be
If it wasn’t for the cross

Hallelujah thank You Jesus
I was a pris’ner now I’m not
(Oh ’cause) With Your blood You bought my freedom
(Oh) Hallelujah for the cross (oh)

All my shame was met with mercy
Now Your mercy will be my song
And oh the glory
Oh the power of the cross

By Your stripes I’m healed
By Your death I live
The pow’r of sin overcome
It is finished (it is done)

I thank You for the cross
Jesus I thank You for the cross

NOTE: This probably should go without saying but I get no remuneration for promoting songs (I also have nothing to do with the ads that show up here). I simply share worship songs that have blessed me and so I post them. Hopefully, you find them encouraging. I also want the artist or author to benefit from their labors so I provide links to their store when possible.

God's favorite (and so are you), a son and a father, happily married to the same beautiful woman for 41 years. We have three incredible adult children. My passion is pursuing the Father's heart in Christ and giving it away to others. My favorite pastime is being iconoclastic and trailblazing the depths of God's grace.

    Thanks Mel… as we enter Passion Week I will try to remember each day that our God is a cruciform God.

    Amen, Mel!
