A Cross

Point of Grace, a Gospel group, makes a great point with their song, “The Great Divide”  Here are the lyrics and some video:

Words and music by grant cunningham & matt huesmann

Silence
Trying to fathom the distance
Looking out ’cross the canyon carved
By my hands
God is gracious
Sin would still separate us
Were it not for the bridge his grace
Has made us
His love will carry me

(chorus)
There’s a bridge to cross the great divide
A way was made to reach the other side
The mercy of the father, cost his son
His life
His love is deep, his love is wide
There’s a cross to bridge the great divide

God is faithful
On my own I’m unable
He found me hopeless, alone and
Sent a savior
He’s provided a path a promised
To guide us
Safely past all the sin that would divide us
His love delivers me

(repeat chorus)

The cross that cost my lord his life
Has given me mine

(repeat chorus)

There’s a bridge to cross the great divide
There’s a cross to bridge the great divide

“For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him [Jesus], and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.” Colossians 1:19, 20 (NIV)
