08. The Promise of Your Cross

Where Angels Fear To Tread
by Matt Redman



 

Forever in my heart
And written on my soul
The promise of Your cross
I have no other claim
I have no other plea
The promise of Your cross
The hope for every heart

Where mercy ever flows
And shame's no longer known
I'll praise You for the cross
The promise of Your cross to me
It never fails to bring
The cleansing that I need
I'll praise You for the cross
The promise of Your cross to me

Embedded in my heart
And rooted in my soul
The promise of Your cross
It seals me as Your own
And tells me I am Yours
The promise of your cross
The hope for every heart

Tell it in all the earth
Sing it throughout the world
The promise of the cross
There is a higher way
There is a higher hope
The promise of Your cross
The hope for every heart



Behind the Song:
'I think one of the main challenges for worship song writers is to find fresh ways of expressing age-old themes which have been written about in so many powerful ways already. The cross is of course the most obvious example. So, this song talks about the ‘promise’ of the cross – in other words all the amazing blessings that Jesus secured for us in that place. I ended up using a lot of ‘legal-speak’ in the song for that very reason; eg 'I have no other claim, I have no other plea – the promise of your cross.' And 'It seals me as your own...'' - Matt Redman
