+†+ Love Crucified Arose +†+

Long ago He blessed the earth
Born older than the years
And in the stall the cross He saw
Through the first of many tears
A life of homeless wandering
Cast out in sorrow's way
The shepherd seeking for the lost
His life the price He paid.

Love crucified arose
The risen One in splendor
Jehovah's sole defender
has won the victory
Love crucified arose
and the grave became a place of hope
for the Heart that sin and sorrow broke
is beating once again.

Throughout Your life You've felt the weight
Of what You'd come to give
To drink for us that crimson cup
So we might really live
At last the time love and die
That dark appointed day
That one forsaken moment when
Your Father turned His face away

Love crucified arose.
The One who lived and died for me
Was Satan's nail-pierced casualty.
Now He's breathing once again.
Love crucified arose
And the grave became a place of hope.
For the Heart that sin and sorrow broke
Is beating once again.

Love crucified arose
The risen One in splendor
Jehovah's sole Defender
Has won the victory
Love crucified arose
And the grave became a place of hope
for the Heart that sin and sorrow broke
is beating once again.
