compelled by grace to cast my lot

In the shadow of the glorious cross
Compelled by grace to cast my lot 
I’ll discard the loss and bear your name 
Forsaking all for your own fame
Your hymn of grace sung over me 

Abounding forth in glorious streams 
My thirst is quenched by you my Lord 
Sustained am I redeemed restored 
Sustained am I redeemed restored

Hallelujah, Hallelujah 

When death’s dark shadow’s at my feet
When I am plagued by unbelief 
You place my hands into your side 
By precious blood identified 
By precious blood identified 

Hallelujah, Hallelujah 

These crowns I’ve clenched with fisted hands 
I cast them down before the throne 

Of Christ my God the worthy lamb 
Christ crucified, the Great I AM 
Christ crucified, the Great I AM 
Christ crucified, the Great I AM 

Hallelujah, Hallelujah

[Sojourn, "In the Shadow of the Glorious Cross"]
