The Cross, by Phatfish

As a Christian, God is centre and foremost to everything in my life. It therefore seems an appropriate place to start this journey.

This song thanks Christ for dying on the cross in my place, so that when I stand before God on Judgement Day, He can dismiss those sins that Christ covered up, and grant me eternal life.

Phatfish is a UK Worship band that continuously pumps out biblically sound worship songs. They have quickly become my favourite worship band.

The music is modern – not generally my taste, but because of the lyrics I can bear it!



Lyrics (courtesy

I see You hanging there, nailed to a splintered wooden beam,
Drinking pain and sorrow, breathing agony.
And in those dark, dark hours as life drained from Your flesh and bones,
I know my life had it’s begining at Your cross,
And I thank You….

For the cross where You bled,
For the cross where You died,
For the cross where You’ve broken Satan’s back,
For the cross where You won,
For the cross of victory,
For the cross where You paid the price for me.

You were my substitute in laying down Your life for mine,
Being cursed and bearing God’s wrath for me.
You were crushed by my sin – Your punishment has brought me peace,
By the wounds You suffered I’m alive and healed.
And I thank You….


Two days in the grave and then You rose up from the dead.
Now You reign in glory, rule in righteousness
And I was raised with You, free at last from all my sin,
Safe forever in the home of my King.
And I thank You….
I’m free at last from all my sin, safe forever with my King 
(repeat to fade)……
