Mighty Is the Power of the Cross

We sang this in the 9:45 and 11:00 services on Sunday. It was written by Chris Tomlin, and as I was preparing for Sunday's message, I couldn't help but think of it again.

What can take a dying man
And raise him up to life again?
What can heal the wounded soul?
What can make us white as snow?
What can fill the emptiness?
What can mend our brokenness?

Mighty, awesome, wonderful
Is the Holy cross.
Where the Lamb lay down His life
To lift us from the fall.
Mighty is the power of the cross.

What restores our faith in God?
What reveals the Father's love?
What can lead the wayward home?
What can melt a heart of stone?
What can free the guilty ones?
What can save and overcome?

It's a miracle to me
It's still a mystery
It's a miracle to me
The power of God
To those who believe
