{Verse 1}
F/A    G/B     C
Oh, to see the dawn
       G7/D    C/E
Of the darkest day
F             C/E     Dm7    Fmaj7    Gsus4  G
Christ on the road to Cal  -  va   -   ry
F/A      G/B    C
Tried by sinful men,
         G7/D    C/E
Torn and beaten, then
F           C/E    Fmaj7  Gsus4    G/F
Nailed to a cross  of     wood

{Chorus}
C/E       F     G/B    C
This, the power of the cross
C/E      F    G/B     C
Christ became sin for us
C/E      F     D/F#     G
Took the blame bore the wrath 
G/F   C/E     F     Gsus4   G    C
We  stand forgiven at       the cross

{Verse 2}
F/A    G/B      C
Oh, to see the pain
        G7/D    C/E
Written on Your face
F             C/E    Dm7   Fmaj7   Gsus4   G
Bearing the awesome weight  of     sin
F/A    G/B      C
Every bitter thought
      G7/D   C/E
Every evil deed
F         C/E    Fmaj7     Gsus4   G/F
Crowning Your bloodstained brow

{Verse 3}
F/A       G/B      C
Now the daylight flees
         G7/D    C/E
Now the ground beneath
F             C/E    Dm7   Fmaj7   Gsus4   G
Quakes as its Maker bows    His     head
F/A      G/B     C
Curtain torn in two
          G7/D     C/E
Dead are raised to life
F           C/E   Fmaj7   Gsus4   G/F
'Finished!' the victory    cry 

{Verse 4}
F/A    G/B     C
Oh, to see my name
       G7/D     C/E
Written in the wounds
F             C/E     Dm7   Fmaj7   Gsus4   G
For through Your suffering I am     free
F/A        G/B        C
Death is crushed to death
        G7/D     C/E
Life is mine to live
F           C/E    Fmaj7   Gsus4   G/F
Won through Your selfless  love

{Final Chorus}
C/E        F     G/B    C
This, the power of the cross
C/E     F     G/B      C
Son of God - slain for us
C/E      F   D/F#    G       
What a love! What a cost
G/F   C/E     F     Gsus4   G    C
We  stand forgiven at       the cross
