Verse 1Who would have thought the schemes of mancould bring about our father’s plans?Who would have thought that rage and spitewould work for good and bring us life?
Verse 2Who would have thought the cursed crosssin’s bitter wage, the hangman’s treewould be our joy and our delightthe flag, the glory of the free?
ChorusLift high the cross, sing out Jesus’ nameLift it up, sing it out, its God’s power to saveLift high the cross, sing out Jesus’ nameLift it up, sing it out, praise his glorious name!
Verse 3Who would have thought the Lord of lifecould lie so helpless in the grave?Who would have thought that out of deathwould come God’s mighty power to save?
Verse 4Who would have thought this broken heartcould be renewed and purified?Praise be to Christ, this dying framewill rise and gain eternal life!
