Verse 1:
           G         D/G     G
O precious sight, my Saviour stands,
          G/B
dying for me with outstretched hands.
           C2       D/F♯    Em7
O precious sight; I love to gaze,
       Am     D/F♯     Em7
remembering salvation's day,
       Am      D/F♯     G
remembering salvation's day.
          G       D/G         G
Though my eyes linger on this scene,
            G/B
may passing time and years not steal
               C2       D/F♯2    Em7
the power with which it impacts  me,
              Am     D/F♯  Em7
the freshness of its mystery,
              Am     D/F♯  G
the freshness of its mystery.
Chorus:
                     D/F♯
May I never lose the wonder,
    Am7           G
the wonder of the cross.
      Em7             D/F♯
May I see it like the first time,
         Am7         Em7
standing as a sinner lost.
          C              G/B
Undone by mercy and left speechless,
         Am7              Em7
watching wide eyed at the cost.
      C     D/F♯     Em7
May I never lose the wonder,
    Am7    D/F♯   G
the wonder of the cross.
Verse 2:
           G       D/G  G
Behold the God-man crucified,
            G/B
the perfect sinless sacrifice.
             C2         D/F♯      Em7
As blood ran down those nails and wood,
     Am     D/F♯     Em7
history was split in two,
     Am     D/F♯     G
history was split in two.
           G     D/G    G
Behold the empty wooden tree,
         G/B
His body gone, alive and free.
             C2  D/F♯    Em7
We sing with everlasting joy
            Am         D/F♯    Em7
for sin and death have been destroyed,
           Am        D/F♯     G
sin and death have been destroyed.

O PRECIOUS SIGHT, my Savior stands,
Dying for me with outstretched hands.
O precious sight; I love to gaze,
Remembering salvation's day,
Remembering salvation's day.

May I never lose the wonder, the wonder of the cross
May I see it like the first time,
Standing as a sinner lost.
Undone by mercy and left speechless,
Watching wide-eyed at the cost.
May I never lose the wonder the wonder of the cross.


Though my eyes linger on this scene,
May passing time and years not steal
The power with which it impacts me,
The freshness of its mystery,
The freshness of its mystery.

Behold, the God - Man crucified,
The perfect sinless sacrifice.
As blood ran down those nails and wood,
History was split in two,
History was split in two.

Behold, the empty wooden tree,
His body gone, alive and free.
We sing with everlasting joy
For sin and death have been destroyed,
Sin and death have been destroyed.
