AT THE CROSS

Written by Nathan Drake, Ralph E. Hudson

At The Cross Chords (Acoustic)
(Guitar down-tuned 1 whole step)

C                                              

Alas! and did my Savior bleed

         F          C                 G

and did my Sovereign die?

C                                              

Would He devote that sacred head

       Dm        G      C    

to sinners such as I?

 

C                                            

Was it for crimes that I had done

        F                 C           G

he groaned upon the tree?

C                                       

Amazing pity, grace unknown,

         Dm        G           C    

And love beyond degree!

 

 

    Chorus

                C                  

    At the cross, at the cross

                    G

    Where I first saw the light,

    G                                                             C

    And the burden of my heart rolled away,

               F                            C

    It was there by faith I received my sight,

         Dm               G                     C

    And now I am happy all the day!

 

 

 C                                                   

Well might the sun in darkness hide

          F             C         G

and shut his glories in,

C                                                            

When Christ, the mighty Maker died,

       Dm            G             C  

for man the creature's sin.

     Chorus

 

 C                                                    

But drops of grief can ne'er repay

        F            C          G

the debt of love I owe:

C                                             

Here, Lord, I give my self away

      Dm       G       C    

'tis all that I can do.
