​Embrace The Cross

This song is by Steve Green and appears on the album The Mission (1989).

I am crucified with Christ
Therefore I no longer live
Jesus Christ now lives in me
I am crucified with Christ
Therefore I no longer live
Jesus Christ now lives in me

I am crucified with Christ
Therefore I no longer live
Jesus Christ now lives in me
I am crucified with Christ
Therefore I no longer live
Jesus Christ now lives in me

Embrace the cross where Jesus suffered
Though it will cost all you claim as yours
Your sacrifice will seem small beside the treasure
Eternity can't measure what Jesus holds in store

Embrace the love the cross requires
Cling to the One whose heart knew every pain
Receive from Jesus fountains of compassion
Only He can fashion your heart to move as His

Oh, wondrous cross, our desires rest in you
Oh, Lord Jesus, make us bolder
To face with courage the shame and disgrace
You bore upon Your shoulder

Embrace the life that comes from dying
Come trace the steps the Savior walked for you
An empty tomb concludes Golgotha's sorrow
Endure then till tomorrow, your cross of suffering

Embrace the cross
Embrace the cross
The cross of Jesus
