Song of the Week

At the Cross (Love Ran Red) by Chris Tomlin

Ever since first hearing this song from Chris Tomlin on the Passion: Take it All album in April, 2014, this has been one of my favorite songs. It has finally been released as a radio single and is getting the exposure it deserves. You can listen to an acoustic version of the song here.

There’s a place where mercy reigns and never dies,
There’s a place where streams of grace flow deep and wide.
Where all the love I’ve ever found,
Comes like a flood,
Comes flowing down.

[Chorus:]Love Ran Red by Chris Tomlin
At the cross
At the cross
I surrender my life.
I’m in awe of You
I’m in awe of You
Where Your love ran red
and my sin washed white.
I owe all to You
I owe all to You Jesus.

There’s a place where sin and shame are powerless.
Where my heart has peace with God and forgiveness.
Where all the love I’ve ever found.
Comes like a flood,
Comes flowing down.

Here my hope is found
Here on holy ground
Here I bow down
Here arms open wide
Here You save my life
Here I bow down
Here I bow down
