10. You Were On The Cross

Alive Again
by Matt Maher


Lost. Everything is lost
And everything Iíve loved before is gone Alone, like the coming of the frost And a cold winter's chill in my stony heart

Where were You when all that Iíve hoped for Where were You when all that Iíve dreamed Came crashing down in shambles around me You were on the cross

Pain. Could You take away the pain If I find someone to blame Would it make my life seem easier Alone, all my friends are asleep And I can't find anyone to stay awake with me

And where were You when sin stole my innocence Where were You when I was ashamed Hiding in a life I wish Iíd never made

You were on the cross My God, my God All along, all along You were on the cross You died for us

All along, all along You were on the cross Victorious All along, all along

You were there in all my suffering You were there in doubt and fear I'm waiting on the dawn to reappear

Behind the Song:
'In the Laments of Job, you get this sense of, ďeverything is lost, everything is gone, everything that I have worked so hard for, everything that I had been blessed with and I have sores all over meĒ - I think most people don't really stop to imagine what that must have been like for Job. I got to thinking ĎGod where were you when this happened? He was on the cross. I realized that not only is the cross in and of itself the atonement for all sin, but the way in which it happened is now a means by which all human suffering becomes a transformational moment. It does not matter how dark your situation is - God himself has been there and as you grieve it and morn it you can find consolation in him because he was there.' - Matt Maher
