Lyrics

Verse 1: I stand before the cross of Christ, Beneath His outstretched arms. I stand amazed at His loving grace, His care which never harms.
Verse 2: I stand before the cross of Christ, To eat this precious bread. I stand in tho’t of His body torn, That day of awful dread.
Verse 3: I stand before the cross of Christ, And drink this cup of blood. I stand forgiv’n by its saving pow’r, The fountain’s cleansing flood.
Verse 4: I stand before the cross of Christ, And hear Him say “forgive!” I stand redeemed by the sacrifice, And I shall always live.
Chorus: I stand before the cross. O, what an awful cost! I stand before the cross, Looking up at Jesus as He died!
