Verse 1 Long have I pondered the pain of the cross Wood soaked in blood washed with tears Drenched in sweat whips cruel nails Crown of thorns countless cost Somehow this death Is both promise and threat Cascades of suff'ring and love Shrink my pride Silent I'm hushed By His spear-driven side
Verse 2 Long have I pondered the shame of the cross Jeered by the troops by authorities scorned Mocked by a brig and society's dross Christ is abandoned rejected ignored How can I focus on triumphs and things Here writhes my Maker Redeemer and King
Verse 3 Long have I pondered the curse of the cross Sinless the Christ bears my guilt and my pain Thundering silence a measureless cost God in His heaven lets Christ cry in vain Now I can glimpse sin's bleak horror and worse Christ dies and bears the unbearable curse
Verse 4 Long have I pondered the Christ of the cross Gone is the boasting when I'm next to Him Loving the rebel redeeming the lost Jesus' pure goodness exposes my sin Self is cut down by this triumph of grace Christ's bloody cross is the hope of our race
