Songs for Worship

Sing joyfully to the LORD, you righteous; it is fitting for the upright to praise him.  Praise the LORD with the harp; make music to him on the ten-stringed lyre. Sing to him a new song; play skillfully, and shout for joy.

Psalm 33:1-3 (NIV)

 

   

Crucified With Christ

 

Background

This song is based on a verse of immense depth and significance.  In Galatians 2:20, in just a few words, Paul sums up the essence of the life of the Christian.  The life that we call our own is no longer our own.  For the crucified and risen Christ is alive in me and living through me.  He is our life and our strength. 

The second stanza invites us to find strength in the Lord at His table.  This makes this an appropriate communion song as well.  We acknowledge that we are utterly dependent on the life of Christ within us.

While this is a congregational worship song, the bridge section is best done by the worship team.

Lyrics

Chorus
I've been crucified with Christ
Oh Christ, alive in me
And the life I live, I live by faith
In the Son who died for me
I've been crucified with Christ
Oh Christ, alive in me
And the life within my body now's
The life he lives in me 

Verse 1
I bring nothing but a heart
That's full of sin and ripped apart
And I can't even make a start of walking in your way
But in your cross, your love I'm given
On your cross, my sins forgiven
By your cross, new life I'm living, rising ev'ry day

Verse 2
Help me stand, I'm full of weakness
Help me speak, I'm full of meekness
Help me shine through all the bleakness
Trusting only you
Without you I'm just not able
Take me, Lord, up to your table
Feed me, fill me, Lord, enable me to follow you
 

Bridge (trio)
Voice 1:  Crucified with Christ, Crucified with Christ,
             Crucified with Christ, Crucified with Christ,
             Crucified with Christ, Crucified with Christ

Voice 2:  No more do I live my life for me,
              But for him who died for me
              No more do I live my life for me but for Christ in me.

Voice 3:  Now Christ is alive and living in me, living in me
              Now Christ is alive
              The life that I live, he lives in me.
