Verse 1:
G/A  D       Em7     D/F♯    G6   Em7
Beneath the  cross   of      Je - sus, 
  D/A    Bm7      Em7     Em7/A
I find a place to stand;
    D       Em7   D/F♯    G6 Em7
And wonder   at   such    mercy 
     D/A      A7sus4   A7  D
That calls me   as     I  am.
D/F♯   G         A7/G      F♯m7       Bm7
For   hands that should discard me,
     Em7                   Asus4    A
Hold wounds which tell me 'come'.
   D        Em7   D/F♯  G6   Em7
Beneath the cross of    Je - sus 
     D/A    A7sus4    D    D/F♯  A/G  G/A  
My unworthy soul   is won.
Verse 2: 
Beneath the cross of Jesus
His family is my own.
Once strangers chasing selfish dreams,
Now one through grace alone.
How could I now dishonour
The ones that You have loved?
Beneath the cross of Jesus
See the children called by God.
Verse 3: 
Beneath the cross of Jesus,
The path before the crown,
We follow in His footsteps
Where promised hope is found.
How great the joy before us -
To be His perfect bride.
Beneath the cross of Jesus
We will gladly live our lives.

BENEATH THE CROSS OF JESUS
I find a place to stand;
And wonder at such mercy
That calls me as I am.
For hands that should diskard me,
Hold wounds which tell me come.
Beneath the cross of Jesus
My unworthy soul is won.

Beneath the cross of Jesus
His family is my own.
Once strangers chasing selfish dreams,
Now one through grace alone.
How could I now dishonor
The ones that You have loved?
Beneath the cross of Jesus
See the children called by God.

Beneath the cross of Jesus,
The path before the crown,
We follow in His footsteps
Where promised hope is found.
How great the joy before us -
To be His perfect bride.
Beneath the cross of Jesus
We will gladly live our lives.
