Suffering Saviour

Fits tune: Crucifer

('Lift high the cross')



We praise you Lord, your passion we recall

You died and rose again, for one and all


There in the garden, dark Gethsemane

You prayed and pleaded to Father for me - Chorus


There for me you sweat blood in agony

That mankind be redeemed, and so set free - Chorus


Your Father's will you sought and not your own

Your love, obedience there to Him shown - Chorus


Let pass this cup of suffering if you will

Father, but I desire what you will still - Chorus


Through depths of pain, griefs, sorrows you did know

Way to forgiveness and new life did show - Chorus


So strengthened there by angel, garden prayer

Nothing did halt you, you our sins did bear - Chorus


Onwards to cross, you gave your life for all

That all may be saved, whoe'er on you do call - Chorus


Cross not the end, for glorious you did rise

You in our hearts, e'en though you fill all skies - Chorus


Grant us our cross to here daily uptake

Denying self, and living for your sake - Chorus


Heal us and comfort, ever may we see

Cross before crown, working redemptively - Chorus
