We used to wander alone and unloved
Searching for purpose where there was none

This is the hope of the cross

D
We used to carry the weight of the law
Hoping our good would outnumber the wrong

Grace has thrown that burden off

The depths of His scars

Counting the days on the earth we had left

We no longer wander
We're claimed by His blood
We know we are loved now
The cross says how much

The cross says how much

The cross says how much

This is the hope, this is the hope
G                       D
This is the hope of the cross 
We used to wander alone and unloved
Searching for purpose
Where there was none
But now You’ve crowned us heirs and sons
This is the hope of the cross
 
We used to carry the weight of the law
Hoping our good would
Outnumber the wrong
But grace has thrown that burden off
This is the hope of the cross
 
One life given for us
Mercy poured out from 
Tthe depths of His scars
One love conquering all
This is the hope of the cross
 
We used to tremble fearing our deaths
Counting the days
on the earth we had left
But now we walk in fearlessness
This is the hope of the cross
 
O, death, where is your sting
Jesus has taken all you can bring
It is finished and done
This is the hope of the cross
 
We no longer wander
We’re claimed by His blood
We know we are loved now
The cross says how much
