You Chose the Cross

You chose the cross with every breath,
The perfect life, the perfect death:
You chose the cross.
A crown of thorns You wore for us,
And crowned us with eternal life:
You chose the cross.
And though Your soul was overwhelmed with pain,
Obedient to death You overcame.

I’m lost in wonder,
I’m lost in love,
I’m lost in praise forevermore.
Because of Jesus’ unfailing love
I am forgiven, I am restored.

You loosed the cords of sinfulness
And broke the chains of my disgrace:
You chose the cross.
Up from the grave victorious,
You rose again so glorious:
You chose the cross.
The sorrow that surrounded You was mine,
‘Yet not My will but Yours be done!’ You cried.

Because of Jesus I am restored!

You Chose the Cross (Lost in Wonder), written by Martyn Layzell
