Moved by the Cross

Are you moved by the One
Who left His heavenly home
His dwelling high in glory
And His everlasting throne?

And does your soul tremble
At the lashings of the whip
Cracked by Roman soldiers
As the blood poured out and dripped?

Do you stand in amazement
That they nailed Him to a tree
The wrath of God His bearing
That the guilty might go free?

Would you leave behind your pleasures
Given to you as a gift
Counting as your only treasure
The name of Christ to lift?

Is the cross to you a folly
Or has it bought your every breath?
Then exalt Him in your body,
In your life and in your death.
