Hymns for our generation

Speaking of worship songwriting, there are some wonderful new hymns being written by our brothers and sisters across the ocean. These songs give expression to great gospel truths and our love for God in a fresh and powerful way.
The Power Of The Cross
Keith Getty & Stuart Townend

Oh to see the dawn
Of the darkest day
Christ on the road to Calvary
Tried by sinful men
Torn and beaten then
Nailed to a cross of wood
This the power of the cross
Christ became sin for us
Took the blame bore the wrath
We stand forgiven at the cross
Oh to see the pain
Written on Your face
Bearing the awesome weight of sin
Every bitter thought
Every evil deed
Crowning Your bloodstained brow

Now the daylight flees
Now the ground beneath
Quakes as it's Maker bows His head
Curtain torn in two
Dead are raised to life
Finished the victory cry

Oh to see my name
Written in the wounds
For through Your suffering I am free
Death is crushed to death
Life is mine to live
Won through Your selfless love
This the power of the cross
Son of God slain for us
What a love! What a cost!
We stand forgiven at the cross
