Lyrics for Oh Mighty Cross

Oh Mighty Cross is a song that never fails to slow me down and worship Abba God. The words focuses squarely on Jesus Christ and the sacrifice He had to make to give me abundant and overflowing life, undeserving grace and shalom peace.



The song sang of the Lord of life who is raised up on the cross to die. That He knew no sin but took all of mine. That He is so pure yet endured the shame that my impurity caused. The scourging He suffered bought me the peace I can’t get myself.

The cross is mighty indeed. He took my place so that I can take His. And now, as He is, so am I in this world.

The lyrics and music are written by David Baroni and John Chisum.

May it minister life to your soul too.

O mighty cross
Love lifted high
The Lord of life
Raise there to die
His sacrifice on Calvary
Has made the mighty cross a tree of life to me

O mighty cross
What throne of grace
He knew no sin yet took my place
His sacrifice on Calvary
Has made the mighty cross a tree of life to me

O mighty cross
Oh Christ so pure
Love held him there such shame endured
His sacrifice on Calvary
Has made the mighty cross a tree of life to me

O mighty cross
My soul’s release
The stripes He bore has brought me peace
His sacrifice on Calvary
Has made the mighty cross a tree of life to me

Oh mighty cross x3
A tree of life to me

Oh mighty cross!
