People of the Cross




We are the people of the Cross
We fellowship within our loss
For we know our loss is gain
For Christ has made the great exchange
We are the people of the Cross
We receive these gifts and know their cost
Faith, Adoption, justification
Sanctification reconciliation

Receive Christ, the gift of Grace
Hear and heed Him now by faith
The contrite heart he will uplift
For He Himself is the glorious gift

Now sense the Holy Spirit speak
When His Kingdom first you seek
Union with Jesus now affords 
Amazing glories and rewards
Beyond all worldly powers and wealth
Christ gives to us His Very Self
So in His presence now abide
Beneath His shelter e’er to  hide.

Receive Christ, the gift of Grace
Hear and heed Him now by faith
The contrite heart he will uplift
For He Himself is the glorious gift
