G                                      Csus2             C      G
This is the message of the cross, that we can be free 
                      Csus2                C           G
To live in the victory and turn from our sin. 
                               Am7   Csus2         C/E  G
My precious Lord Jesus with sinners you died.

For there you revealed your love and you laid down your life. 
 
 
Verse 2: 
 
 
This is the message of the cross, that we can be free. 
To lay all our burdens here at the foot of the tree. 
The cross was the shame of the world 
But the glory of God 
For Jesus, You conquered sin and You gave us new life. 

A: 
G             D                             C/D  G
You set me free when I came to the cross, 
                          D                          C/D         G
Poured out your blood for I was broken and lost. 
                   D               Em9
There I was healed and you covered my sin 
                       Csus2
It's there you saved me 
D  G
This is the message of the cross 
Verse 3: 
 
 
This is the message of the cross, that we can be free. 
To hunger for heaven, Lord, to hunger for Thee. 
"The cross is such foolishness to the perishing, 
But to us who are being saved, it is the power of God." 
 
 
Chorus B: 
You set us free when we come to the cross. 
You pour out your blood for we are broken and lost. 
Here we are healed and you cover our sin. 
It's here you save us. 
You set me free when I come to the cross. 
Pour out your blood for I am broken and lost. 
Here I am healed and you cover my sin. 
It's here you save me. 
This is the message of the cross.
