This song is often sung as a praise song in many churches, but it started as a single. It is an homage to an old hymn, and speaks that same message to a new generation.
Bible Reference… Mark 8:34; 1Corinthians 1:18; 1Peter 2:24
There’s a place where mercy rains and never dies;
there’s a place where streams of grace flow deep and wide.
Where all the love I’ve ever found comes like a flood… comes flowing down…

        CHORUS:
        At the cross, at the cross, I surrender my life.
        I’m in awe of You! I’m in awe of You!
        Where Your love ran red, and my sin washed white,
        I owe all to You. I owe all to You, Jesus.

There’s a place where sin and shame are powerless,
and where my heart had peace with God and forgiveness.
Where all the love I’ve ever found comes like a flood… comes flowing down…
(CHORUS)

Here my hope is found, here on holy ground. Here I bow down. Here I bow down.
Here, arms open wide; here, You saved my life. Here, I bow down; here, I bow…
(CHORUS)
