Lead Me to the Cross

But whatever gain I had, I counted as loss for the sake of Christ. Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which comes through faith in Christ, the righteousness from God that depends on faith—that I may know him and the power of his resurrection, and may share his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, that by any means possible I may attain the resurrection from the dead. – Philippians 3:7-11

This Sunday we will be introducing a new song to our Sunday gathering entitled Lead Me to the Cross by Brooke Fraser. It is featured on the Hillsong United album All of the Above album. It is particularly relevant as we get ready to move into the season of Lent, and join with Christians around the world reflecting upon the life, death, and resurrection of our Lord, Jesus Christ. Lead Me to the Cross is based on Philippians 3:7-11, and just like during our Communion time, leads us to reflect on the cross, Jesus’ body broken and blood shed for our atonement. Here are the lyrics to the song:

Savior, I come, quiet my soul, remember
Redemption’s hill
Where Your blood was spilled
For my ransom

Everything I once held dear I count it all as loss

Lead me to the cross where your love poured out
Bring me to my knees, Lord I lay me down
Rid me of myself, I belong to You
Oh lead me, lead me to the cross

You were as I, tempted and tried human
The Word became flesh
Bore my sin and death
Now You’re risen

Lead me to Your heart

I pray that meditating and singing about Jesus on the cross would warm our affections towards Christ and his abundant grace towards us, and cause praise to readily be on our lips.
