THE POWER OF THE CROSS

Written by: PETER ADELAKUN

Considered to be an ordinary wood
Was the cross at Golgotha where it stood
On which there lay a man with bad mood 
Who was thought not to be fully good

On the cross came the strength that sought
For all those who are weak to have a thought
Of being free from him by whom they were bought
And become His friend who turned satan's plan to nought

On the cross was made public our healing
Through Jesus who for us is still waiting
To believe in God before whom He is now pleading
For all the sinners who into salvation are still coming

On the cross man has an encounter with righteousness
Bringing him into his rightful place of brightness
And having had the heavenly taste of holiness
He is able to maintain with his maker a sense of closeness
