In the beginning, in the form of God
With just a word You sang creation’s song
But when by sin humanity was marred
You took on flesh to save a world gone wrong

At Calvary, the soldiers chose the nails
to fasten You upon the cruel tree
The hammer drove into Your sinless hands
The nails You chose to pay sin’s penalty

You are the Christ, Son of the living God
My rebel heart in mercy You pursued
No other name deserves my praise
You are my life, my all, and I belong to You

Triumphantly prevailing over hell
You broke sin’s curse by rising from the dead
Parading captives forth in victory
You freed my soul and crushed the serpent’s head

And when one day redemption is complete
I gaze at last upon Your face unveiled
My voice shall echo through eternity
“In spite of me, Your saving grace prevailed!”
