The Beauty of the Cross

The Beauty of the Cross The beauty of the Cross Is its saving power. When we’re touched by remorse, Mercy God does shower. Over every contrite heart, Wherever it may be, In jail or a palace, All because of Calvary. The beauty of the Cross Is not in its wood or nails, But in the one who gave his life; A precious love that never fails. It touches the soul that’s sinful And brings about regret. For any type of disobedience; In repentance God forgets. The Beauty of the Cross Is not in what is seen, But rather in what it represents; Life where death has been. A hope of eternity Long after the grave. All because Christ hung there— Everything he gave. The Beauty of the Cross Never wanes or loses its allure. For there’s no other answer; No other life-saving cure. Grace and mercy are its jewels; Peace and joy its crown; The beauty of the Cross Will forever be renown! © Copyright 2008-2012 Maureen LeFanue
