D     A/D       D2/G            D/F♯
Jesus Christ, I think upon Your sacrifice
Em7        D/F♯     D2/G          A7sus4   A7
You became nothing, poured out to death
D     A/D       D2/G             D/F♯
Many times I've wondered at Your gift of life
    Em7         A7sus4     A7  D
And I'm in that place once again

And I'm in that place once again
Chorus:
    D/F♯         D2/G          D/F♯            A7sus4   A7
And once again I look upon the cross where You died

I'm humbled by Your mercy and I'm broken inside
Bm7          D2/G       D/F♯         A7sus4      D2/G   A7sus4  A7   D
Once again I thank You, once again I pour out my life
Verse 2:
D     A/D       D2/G            D/F♯
Now You are exalted to the highest place
Em7        D/F♯     D2/G          A7sus4   A7
King of the heavens, where one day I'll bow
D     A/D       D2/G             D/F♯
But for now, I marvel at this saving grace
    Em7         A7sus4     A7  D
And I'm full of praise once again
    Em7         A7sus4     A7  D
I'm full of praise once again
Tag:
D2/G              A7sus4   D
Thank You for the cross,   thank You for the cross
D2/G              A7sus4    D
Thank You for the cross, my friend   (Repeat)

Jesus Christ, I think upon Your sacrifice,
You became nothing, poured out to death.
Many times I've wondered at Your gift of life,
And I'm in that place once again.
And I'm in that place once again.

And once again I look upon
The cross where You died,
I'm humbled by Your mercy
And I'm broken inside.
Once again I thank You,
Once again I pour out my life.

Now You are exalted to the highest place,
King of the heavens, where one day I'll bow.
But for now, I marvel at this saving grace,
And I'm full of praise once again.
I'm full of praise once again.

Thank You for the cross,
Thank You for the cross,
Thank You for the cross, my Friend.
(Repeat)
