Who Would Have Thought?


Verse 1: Who would have thought the schemes of man
could bring about our father’s plans?
Who would have thought that rage and spite
would work for good and bring us life?

Verse 2: Who would have thought the cursed cross
sin’s bitter wage, the hangman’s tree
would be our joy and our delight
the flag, the glory of the free?

Chorus: Lift high the cross, sing out Jesus’ name
Lift it up, sing it out, its God’s power to save
Lift high the cross, sing out Jesus’ name
Lift it up, sing it out, praise his glorious name!

Verse 3: Who would have thought the Lord of life
could lie so helpless in the grave?
Who would have thought that out of death
would come God’s mighty power to save?

Verse 4: Who would have thought this broken heart
could be renewed and purified?
Praise be to Christ, this dying frame
will rise and gain eternal life!
