Original Key: Am


Verse: 1
  Am       Em/G   Fmaj7    F6
A crown of many   thorns,
  C2/E   Bb/D        A(b9)/C#    A/C# 
A body bruised and torn,
    Am       Em/G    Fmaj7  C2/E    C/E
For all Your pain I  bow in shame.
    B♭       Esus4   E
And I cannot ignore:
     F             Em            Am    G6
It's my hands that placed that crown,
F             Em            Am    G6
My heart that weighed You down,
F             Em        Am        Gsus4    G    Gsus4    G
My voice that shouted, 'Crucify'.
Verse: 2
    Am     Em/G  Fmaj7    F6
How can I comprehend
     C2/E      Bb/D      A(b9)/C#    A/C# 
That life can come from death,
     Am      Em/G      Fmaj7   C2/E      C/E
That all the wounds by cruel   nails
     B♭          Esus4   E
Can heal my brokenness.
       F       Em    Am    G6
It was love so merciful,
      F      Em    Am
Your love so beautiful,
 G6  F         Em       Am      Gsus4  G  Gsus4  G
Pure love that hides me in Your heart.
Chorus:
           C     C/B   Am7              F
And I say, thank You, thank You for the cross;
C     C/B   Am7              F
Thank You, thank You for the cross.
     C  C/B    Am7               F
Hallelujah,   thank You for the cross,
C     C/B  C/B♭              F
Thank You, thank You for the cross.
Am   Em/G  Fmaj7  F6    C/E  Bb/D  A(b9)/C#  A
Am   Em/G  F   C/E      B♭/D    Esus4    E
Verse 3:
    F   Em     Am   G6        F
Now I  stand holy,  healed, forgiven,
Em     Am        F     Em          Am       Gsus4  G  Gsus4  G
And I raise my hands towards the wondrous cross. 

A crown of many thorns
A body bruised and torn
For all Your pain I bow in shame
And I cannot ignore
It's my hands that placed that crown
My heart that weighed You down
My voice that shouted, ‘crucify'
 
How can I comprehend
That life can come from death
That all wounds by cruel nails
Can heal my brokenness
It was love so merciful
Your love so beautiful
Pure love that hides me in your heart
 
And I say, thank You, thank You for the cross
Thank You, thank You for the cross
Hallelujah, thank You for the cross
Jesus, thank You thank You for the cross

 
Now I stand holy, healed, forgiven
And I raise my hands towards the wondrous cross
