Lyrics for O Mighty Cross | John Chisum and David Baroni

Oh Mighty Cross

Lyrics for O Mighty Cross. A song that never fails to slow me down and worship Abba God.

The words focus squarely on Jesus Christ and the sacrifice He made to give me abundant and overflowing life, undeserving grace and shalom peace.

Lyrics

Lyrics and music written by David Baroni and John Chisum.

O mighty cross
Love lifted high
The Lord of life
Raise there to die
His sacrifice on Calvary
Has made the mighty cross a tree of life to me

O mighty cross
What throne of grace
He knew no sin yet took my place
His sacrifice on Calvary
Has made the mighty cross a tree of life to me

O mighty cross
Oh Christ so pure
Love held him there such shame endured
His sacrifice on Calvary
Has made the mighty cross a tree of life to me

O mighty cross
My soul’s release
The stripes He bore has brought me peace
His sacrifice on Calvary
Has made the mighty cross a tree of life to me

O mighty cross x3
A tree of life to me

O mighty cross!

The song sang of the Lord of life who is raised up on the cross to die. He knew no sin but took all of mine. He is so pure yet endured the shame that my impurity caused. The scourging He suffered bought me the peace I can’t get myself.

The cross is mighty indeed. He took my place so that I can take His. And now, as He is, so am I in this world.

May it minister life to your soul too.

This song can be found in the Firm Foundation worship album by John Chisum featuring Integrity’s Hosanna! Music.

Be Greatly Blessed, Phoebe
