"Oh, to see the dawn"

We sang this today in church and just wanted to share it. Good tune, fantastic words, thank you Stuart Townend and Keith Getty for writing it!

Verse 1
Oh, to see the dawn, Of the darkest day: Christ on the road to Calvary. Tried by sinful men, Torn and beaten, then, Nailed to a cross of wood.

This, the power of the cross: Christ became sin for us. Took the blame, bore the wrath -We stand forgiven at the cross.

Verse 2
Oh, to see the pain, Written on Your face, Bearing the awesome weight of sin. Every bitter thought, Every evil deed, Crowning Your bloodstained brow.

Verse 3
Now the daylight flees, Now the ground beneath, Quakes as its Maker bows His head. Curtain torn in two, Dead are raised to life; 'Finished!' the victory cry.

Verse 4
Oh, to see my name, Written in the wounds, For through Your suffering I am free. Death is crushed to death, Life is mine to live, Won through Your selfless love.

Chorus 2
This, the power of the cross: Son of God - slain for us. What a love! What a cost! We stand forgiven at the cross.
