Cradle, Cross to Crown

A cradle filled with hay Our newborn Jesus lay Born of the Virgin Mary Sin of man to carry From the cradle, Mary knew What Jesus must go through A world lost and undone A Savior, He would become A world who could not understand The divine purpose of God’s plan Barabbas, set Him free Crucify, the man from Galilee Nailed to an old rugged cross It seemed all hope was lost His death to pay the price His life to be sacrificed The love shown that day No man could repay Bringing life unto the dead Stood a cross covered in red A stone rolled into place At the tomb where Jesus lay A resurrection to take place Evidence of God’s Amazing Grace Death stands in defeat Victory, so sweet The grave holds no bondage No longer Hell’s hostage A crown of many my Savior wears Never again a cross to bear He rules from the Heavens above Our Savior, our King, our Beloved Never again to be a lamb slain The Roaring Lion of Judah, He became Mediator between man and God Ruling with an iron rod He paid the price to set me free At His name, Satan flees No greater love, I have found From cradle, cross to a crown
