Music and lyrics by Tim Hughes and Brooke Fraser – to have a listen to a snippet enter in ‘Clinging to the Cross’ on itunes.

I want you to see the richness of these lyrics and their fullness. DON’T SKIM THEM READ THEM! I like many people think words are a very powerful tool. My particular pondering point over the last few months has been ‘Out of the same mouth comes praise and hate filled words’… ( Have a look at James 3). I find the following words so beautiful as they remind us that even when we fail misreably at something we can always cling on to Jesus.

CLINGING TO THE CROSS
My soul is weak
My heart is numb
I cannot see
But still my hope is found in You
I’ll hold on tightly
You will never let me go
For Jesus, You will never fail
Jesus, You will never fail

Simply to the cross i cling
Letting go of all earthly things
Clinging to the cross
Mercy’s found a way for me
Hope is here as i am free
Jesus, You are all i need
Clinging to the cross

Even darkness is as light to You, my Lord
So light the way and lead me home
To that place where every tear is wiped away
For Jesus, You will never fail
Jesus, You will never fail

Simply to the cross i cling
Letting go of all earthly things
Clinging to the cross
Mercy’s found a way for me
Hope is here as i am free
Jesus, You are all i need
Clinging to the cross

What a Saviour, what a story
You were crucified but now You are alive
So amazing, such a mystery
You were crucified but now You are alive

Simply to the cross i cling
Letting go of all earthly things
Clinging to the cross
Mercy’s found a way for me
Hope is here as i am free
Jesus, You are all i need
Clinging to the cross
