I've seen crosses made of gold,
Bedecked with jewels rare;
Costly rubies, emeralds, diamonds,
With pearls scattered everywhere.
Some carved out of ivory,
Jewels of all shapes and colors,
Everything called precious, beneath the sun.
The most beautiful of all crosses,
Is the one hewn out of wood;
The one on which my Saviour hung,
Doing...what I never could.
Sin was an issue,
Since Adam...mankind trapped;
In the throlls of death...forever,
Held, firmly, in its grasp.
On that day, it was appointed,
One Perfect Sacrifice;
Blood shed for atonement,
God and mankind made aright.
So, my choice today and always,
That rugged Cross for me;
Thank You, JESUS, for your sacrifice,
All who believe, are now set free.
