Verse 1:
Em7            D/F♯      Cmaj7
Forever in my heart
                  D/F♯      Em7
And written on my soul
           D/F♯      Cmaj7      D/F♯
The promise of Your cross
Em7              D/F♯      Cmaj7
I have no other claim
                 D/F♯      Em7
I have no other plea
           D/F♯     Cmaj7        C2        G/B   Am
The promise of Your cross, the hope for every heart
Chorus:
        G                     Em7
Where mercy ever flows, and shame's no longer known
  A7sus                             C2                    G
I praise You for the cross, the promise of Your cross to me
     G                          Em7
It never fails to bring, the cleansing that I need
  A7sus                            C2                     G   D
I praise You for the cross, the promise of Your cross to me
Verse 2:
Embedded in my heart, and rooted in my soul
The promise of Your cross
It seals me as Your own and tells me I am Yours
The promise of Your cross, the hope for every heart
Verse 3:
Tell it in all the earth, sing it throughout the world
The promise of Your cross
There is a higher way, there is a higher hope
The promise of Your cross, the hope for every heart

FOREVER IN MY HEART
And written on my soul
The promise of Your cross
I have no other claim
I have no other plea
The promise of Your cross
The hope for every heart


Where mercy ever flows
And shame's no longer known
I'll praise You for the cross
The promise of Your cross to me
It never fails to bring
The cleansing that I need
I'll praise You for the cross
The promise of Your cross to me


Embedded in my heart
And rooted in my soul
The promise of Your cross
It seals me as Your own
And tells me I am Yours
The hope for every heart

Tell it in all the earth
Sing it throughout the world
The promise of the cross
There is a higher way
There is a higher hope
The promise of Your cross
The hope for every heart
