By the Cross (Red Rocks)

Long my soul has waited for You
Bound by sin and nature’s night
But in the secret, I will find You
A mighty ray of holy light

Oh, these chains were sweetly broken
Bound by shame, You set me free
Perfect love, my fear was stolen
When Thou, my Jesus, died for me

By the cross of Jesus Christ
Every sin was bought at the highest price
And every fear was lost, every sin erased
When Jesus took the cross, He took my place

All my heart I lay before Thee
To sound the depths of love divine
So free, so infinite, Your glory
That I am Yours, and You are mine

Then sings my soul, then cries my heart
‘Til kingdom come, ‘til heavens part
Until He returns or calls me home
I’ll praise the Name of Christ alone

I’ll praise the Name of Christ alone

Long my soul has waited for You
Bound by sin and nature’s night
But in the secret, I will find You
A mighty flood of holy light

He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed. For you were straying like sheep, but have now returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls. 1 Peter 2:24-25

Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us—for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who is hanged on a tree”— Galatians 3:13

By canceling the record of debt that stood against us with its legal demands. This he set aside, nailing it to the cross. Colossians 2:14

And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Philippians 2:8
