From the recording In Him We Stand (Single)
Because this song has a long musical intro, I suggest reading a passage of Scripture as a lead-in to the song itself, such as Hebrews 4:14-16, which ties directly into the lyrics.
Deep, deep was the pain
Of the sins He bore,
Of the crimson stain.
Dark, dark was the day
When my Savior bled,
Gave His life away.
Shadow of the cross, agony of shame,
Unimagined loss for the greatest gain.
Perfect Son of God, perfect Master Plan,
Through His blood in Him we stand.
Grace, God's matchless grace
Took our guilt and sin,
Bore it in our place.
Wrath of God consumed by this Sacrifice,
When the sinless died, all were given life.
Here beneath the cross, see the perfect Lamb!
By His love in Him we stand.
Stone, stone rolled away,
Could not hide the truth of this glorious day!
All our hope renewed in this holy place,
Promise of the day when we see His face.
Precious gift is giv'n by a nail-scarred hand;
Through His life in Him we stand.
