The cross evokes a variety of emotions, some joyful and some overwhelming. Whether we have looked to the cross for hope in the past or seen it as a weapon of destruction, there is a hope that is supposed to emerge with it that reminds us that pain and death may take over, but resurrection is technically ours to claim. There’s a love that should accompany the cross, not many have felt this in its fullness but it doesn’t take away from the truth of the hope it holds.
“My hope with this song is that you may either find further delight in the cross or rekindle a love for it as you let go of the pain its association has caused. Imagine humanity with a fresh love and understanding of the cross? So much could be different if we allowed space for it. May this song symbolise a renewed sense of trust, hope and healing.” – Stefan Green
