The Cross

by Kate Miner and John Colgin

Jesus changed the color of the cross
From the dark of execution to the light of resolution
Jesus changed the color of the cross

Jesus changed the tenor of the cross
From the sound of cold nails driven to the song of man forgiven
Jesus changed the tenor of the cross

How wonderful my Jesus
O glorious my Savior
Magnificent Redeemer
You have changed the meaning of the cross
You have changed the meaning of the cross

Jesus changed the symbol of the cross
From the language of rejection to the sign of resurrection
Jesus changed the symbol of the cross

You have changed the color
You have changed the tenor
You have changed the symbol
You have changed the meaning of the cross

Oh how true!! The cross, symbol of destruction changed to the symbol of victory. Thanks for that reminder.
