  And I will love You for the cost:
G                F                  Am  G   F   Am  G  F
  Man of sufferings, bringer of my peace.
Am          G   F          Am    G    F
  You came into a world of shame,
Am         G         F         Am   G   F
  And paid the price we could not pay:
G                         F                         Am   G  F  Am  G  F

        Am              F
And I love You for the cross,
G                         F
  I'm overwhelmed by the mystery.
    Am                F
I love You for the cost,
G                              F
  That Jesus, You would do this for me.
       Am                F
When You were broken, You were beaten,
  G              F
You were punished,  I go free.
       Am               F
When You were wounded and rejected,
1.
   G          Gmaj7      Am   G   F   Am  G  F   Am  G  F   Am  G  F
In Your mercy,    I am healed. [To v.2]

In Your mercy,    I am healed. [1. Repeat — 2. End]
Verse 2:
Am     G        F         Am      G   F
  Jesus Christ the sinner's Friend
Am      G       F         Am     G     F
  Does this kindness know no bounds?
G                      F                      Am  G  F   Am  G  F
  With Your precious blood You have purchased me.
Am        G    F      Am     G     F
  O, the mystery of the cross
Am        G      F           Am      G     F
  You were punished, You were crushed;
G                  F                Am   G   F   Am  G  F
  But that punishment has become my peace.
G                  F                  C   Em7
  Yes, that punishment has become my peace.

I WILL LOVE YOU FOR THE CROSS
And I will love You for the cost
Man of sufferings
Bringer of my peace
You came into a world of shame
And paid the price we could not pay
Death that brought me life
Blood that brought me home
Death that brought me life
Blood that brought me home

And I love You for the cross
I'm overwhelmed by the mystery
I love You for the cost
That Jesus, You would do this for me
When You were broken, You were beaten
You were punished, I go free
When You were wounded and rejected
In Your mercy, I am healed

Jesus Christ, the sinner's friend
Does this kindness know no bounds
With Your precious blood
You have purchased me
O the mystery of the cross
You were punished, You were crushed
But that punishment
Has become my peace
Yes, that punishment
Has become my peace

Matt & Beth Redman
