lyrics

THE CROSS REMAINS


Though the hardest heart of men
Try to lead us to an end
We may fall, still our hope remains
When the darkness turns to light
When the flames begin to die
Through the smoke the cross remains

(chorus)
It is time to act beyond our good intentions
Pushing back no matter what the cost
We won't let them build an altar on our sorrow
There'll be no laughing at our scars
They're now a part of who we are

Though there's tension in the air
Sometimes more than we can bear
Still we find our hope remains
Yet the story stays the same
With different chapters, different names
Through it all the cross remains

(repeat chorus)

(bridge)
We're beginning now to see
The sacrifice of being free
Remember, it's not what they say
Just watch what they do
The evidence has fallen down
Right in front of you
It's right in front of you

(repeat vs. 1)

Through it all the cross remains (x 2)

Through the smoke
Through the tears
Through so many years
The cross remains
When the darkness turns to light
When the flames begin to die
The cross remains, the cross remains

Though there’s tension in the air
Sometimes more than we can bear
Through it all the cross remains
