Beautiful Terrible Cross

As I hope you know, it is Passion Week. It is the week the church has traditionally set aside to celebrate the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. One aspect I love of this week is the array of songs I am introduced to by different people. Beautiful Terrible Cross by Selah is one of them I heard this past week. Read the words and then listen to the song as you prepare your heart for the celebration of the death of Jesus Christ. 

There is a beautiful terrible cross
Where though you committed no sin
Savior you suffer the most wicked fate
On the cruelest creation of me,

Yet on that beautiful terrible cross
You did what only you could
Turning that dark inspired evil of hell
Into our souls greatest good.

We see the love that you showed us
We see the life that you lost
We bow wonder and praise you
At the beautiful terrible cross

There on that beautiful terrible cross
Though darkness was strong on that hill,
You remain sovereign Lord still in control
Your perfect plan was fulfilled

O, we gain the riches of heaven
Jesus, you paid the horrible cost
We stand forgiven and praise you
For the beautiful terrible cross
