It's About The Cross Song Lyrics


Verse 1

It's not just about the manger where the baby lay                               

It's not all about the angels who sang for him that day                       

It's not just about the shepherds                                                          

Or the bright and shining star                                                             

It's not all about the wisemen who travelled from afar

 

Chorus

It's about the cross                                                                               

It's about my sin                                                                                     

It's about how Jesus came to be born once                                         

So that we could be born again                                                             

It's about the stone that was rolled away                                              

So that you and I could have real life someday                                      

It's about the cross

 

Verse 2

It's not all about the good things                                                            

In this life I've done                                                                               

It’s not all about the treasures                                                                

Or the trophies that I've won                                                                

It’s not about the righteousness                                                          

That I find within                                                                                   

It’s all about His precious blood                                                         

That saved me from my sin

 

Bridge

The beginning of the story                                                                      

Is wonderful and great                                                                        

But it's the ending that can                                                                

Save you and that's why we celebrate

 

Chorus

It's about the cross                                                                               

It's about my sin                                                                                   

It's about how Jesus came to be born once                                        

So that we could be born again                                                          

It's about God's Son nailed to a tree                                                    

It's about every drop of blood that flowed from Him                         

When it should have been me                                                              

It's about the stone that was rolled away                                                

So that you and I could have real life someday (x2)                            

It's about the cross (x2)
