The Cross Still Stands

When all else fails
When all has been destroyed
Lift up your head to see
The cross still stands

When dangers stalk
When darkness fills the land
Lift up your eyes to find
The cross still stands

When fears abound
When hope seems dead and gone
Lift up your heart to know
The cross still stands

The cross where love poured out
With tears and blood
The cross where grace poured out
“Father, forgive”

The cross where hope poured out
Restoring joy
The cross where peace poured out
In death and life

This cross I hold to all my days
This cross I honor with my praise
This cross of glory raised for all
This cross of most holy where I fall
