Cross of Christ by Teresa Thomas
[Click the photo to play the song]
Many years ago, I had the wonderful opportunity of playing in a Christian rock band called "Approaching Violet"! We had such a wonderful time writing songs together. This is one of my songs from that time -- it was a treat finding the CD in a box while packing to move!
Approaching Violet: Terry Butler (drums); Len Sitnick (bass); Richard Day (guitar); me - piano/vocals
Cross of Christ
Oh Cross of Christ,
Love's sweetest face
For there my sin, He dared embrace
And there in death and agony
my Savior bled and died for me
'Father, forgive'...Love's sweetest words
Each dying breath such grace for me
O Love of God, how rich, how pure...
Because of Calvary
