The Glory of the Cross

by Bob Kauflin

What wisdom once devised the plan
Where all our sin and pride
Was placed upon the perfect Lamb
Who suffered, bled and died
The wisdom of a sovereign God
Whose greatness will be shown
When those who crucified Your Son
Rejoice around Your throne

And oh the glory of the Cross
That You would send Your Son for us
I gladly count my life as loss
That I might come to know
The glory of 
The glory of the Cross

What righteousness was there revealed
That sets the guilty free
That justifies ungodly men
And calls the filthy clean
A righteousness that proved to all
Your justice has been met
And holy wrath is satisfied
Through one atoning death

What mercy now has been proclaimed
For those who would believe
A love incomprehensible
Our minds could not conceive
A mercy that forgives my sin
Then makes me like Your Son
And now I’m loved forevermore
Because of what You’ve done
