I wrote Crucified as a reminder to keep coming back to the cross and
reflecting on the ultimate sacrifice given for us. There is a plea for the
Holy Spirit to help us see more of what Jesus did for us and expand the
picture we have. The second verse is then more of a response to his love, as
we take up our cross and follow him. This is obviously a useful song for
communion, but can also be used as a response song focusing on the cross.
Crucified to save me,
crucified to wash me clean.
Your love and life were poured out,
giv'n that I could be set free.
Blood and water flowed,
spilt that I might know your love.
Take me back to the cross,
take me back, show me more of the cost.
Let your Spirit come and turn my eyes
to see your perfect sacrifice.
You walked a path of brokenness,
you walked the path that was my own.
I'll take my cross and follow you,
and demonstrate the love you've shown.
Lead me to that place,
where I see your grace and love.
Show me more of Calvary,
Oh lead me to that place.
I'm humbled by this mystery,
I bow before such grace.
