Jesus, Son of God

We sang “Jesus, Son of God” at tonight’s Gathering service.  I love this song from Chris Tomlin from sung at Passion a few years ago.  This song is a great example of using powerful, gospel-telling lyrics with music that accompanies the lyrics well.

Lyrics

VERSE 1

You came down from heaven’s throne
This earth you formed was not your home
A love like this the world had never known

A crown of thorns to mock your name
Forgiveness fell upon your face
A love like this the world had never known

CHORUS

On the altar of our praise let there be no higher name
Jesus son of God
You laid down your perfect life
You are the sacrifice
Jesus Son of God
You are Jesus Son of God

VERSE 2

You took our sin
You bore our shame
You rose to life
You defeated the grave
Love like this the world has never known

You took our sin
You bore our shame
You rose to life
You defeated the grave
A Love like this the world has never known

BRIDGE

Be lifted higher than all You’ve overcome
Your name be louder than any other song
There is no power that can come against your love

The cross was enough
The cross was enough
The cross was enough
The cross was enough
