It was now about the sixth hour, and darkness came over the whole land until the ninth hour, for the sun stopped shining. And the curtain of the temple was torn in two. Jesus called out with a loud voice, "Father, into your hands I commit my spirit." When he had said this he breathed his last... (From Luke 23)

Lyrics

I will love you for the cross

And I will love you for the cost

Man of sufferings, bringer of my peace

You came into a world of shame

And paid the price we could not pay

Death that brought me life

Blood that brought me home


Death that life, blood that brought me home


And I love you for the cross

I'm overwhelmed by the mystery

I love you for the cost

That Jesus you would do this for me

When you were broken

You were beaten

You were punished

I go free

When you were wounded

And rejected

In your mercy

I am healed


Jesus Christ the sinner's friend

Does this kindness know no bounds

With your precious blood you have purchased me

Oh the mystery of the cross

You were punished, you were crushed

But that punishment has become my peace


Yes that punishment has become my peace


And I love you for the cross

I'm overwhelmed by the mystery

I love you for the cost

That Jesus you would do this for me

When you were broken

You were beaten

You were punished

I go free

When you were wounded

And rejected

In your mercy

I am healed


By your word I am healed


For the cross I thank you


And I love you for the cross...
