FOR THE CAUSE

Keith Getty, Kristyn Getty, Stuart Townend

For the cause of Christ the King
We give our lives an offering
Till all the earth
Resounds with ceaseless praise to the Son

For the cause of Christ we go
With joy to reap, with faith to sow
As many see
And many put their trust in the Son

* Christ we proclaim
The Name above every name
For all creation, every nation
God’s salvation through the Son

For the King once lifted high
To cries of rage, of ‘crucify!’
Endures the cross
As every sin was laid on the Son

To the King who conquered death
To free the poor and the oppressed
For lasting peace
For life and liberty in the Son
(back to *)

Let it be my life’s refrain
To live is Christ, to die is gain
Deny myself, take up my cross
And follow the Son
(back to *)
