Modern hymn of the week. . .

Well, my break is over.

To kick things off, I thought I’d start with another lyric. I was hoping to avoid posting two songs by the same writer back-to-back, but I couldn’t resist. This modern hymn is such a powerful message about our response to Christ’s sacrifice and describes the believer’s yearning to take part in it.

“Lead Me to the Cross” by Brooke Fraser

Saviour, I come
Quiet my soul
Remember
Redemption’s hill
Where Your blood was spilled
For my ransom

Everything I once held dear
I count it all as loss

Lead me to the cross
Where Your love poured out
Bring me to my knees
Lord, I lay me down
Rid me of myself
I belong to You
Oh lead me
Lead me to the cross

You were as I
Tempted and tried
Human
The Word became flesh
Bore my sin and death
Now You’re risen

Everything I once held dear
I count it all as loss

Lead me to the cross
Where Your love poured out
Bring me to my knees
Lord, I lay me down
Rid me of myself
I belong to You
Oh lead me
Lead me to the cross
