Crucified with Christ

When I look back at what I thought was living
I'm amazed at the price I chose to pay.
And to think I ignored what really mattered,
Cause I thought the sacrifice would be too great.
But when I finally reached the point of giving in
I found the cross was calling even then
And even thought it took dying to survive
I've never felt so much alive

For I am crucified with Christ and yet I live
Not I but Christ that lives with in me
His cross will never ask for more than I can give
For it's not my strength but His
There's no greater sacrifice, For I am crucified with Christ
and yet I live

As I hear the Saviour call for daily dying
I will bow beneath the weight of Calvary
Let my hands surrender to His piercing purpose
That holds me to the cross yet sets me free
I will glory in the power of the cross
The things I thought were gain I count as loss
And with His suffering I identify
And by His resurrection power I am alive

And I will offer all I have
So that His cross is not in vain
For I've found to live is Christ
And to die is truly gain.
