Here on this holy ground
You made a way for peace
Laying Your body down

The battle rages on
As storm and tempest roar
We cannot win this fight
Inside our rebel hearts
We're laying down our weapons now

We raise our white flag
We surrender
All to You, all for You
We raise our white flag
The war is over
Love has come, Your love has won


Here on this holy ground
You made a way for peace
Laying Your body down
You took our rightful place
This freedom song is marching on

We lift the cross, lift it high, lift it high (2x)
We lift the cross, lift it high, lift it high (2x)
We lift the cross, lift it high, lift it high (4x)
