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
