Hide Me Behind the Cross


There are times after my devotional that I want to listen to music. Today, I was listening to this song, "Hide Me Behind the Cross" by Gold City Quartet. This song expresses what I want to say in prayer: more of You and less of me and reflect in me Your spirit.

Hide Me Behind the Cross
by Gold City Quartet

Lord as I seek to serve You, 
May You find in me what's pleasing to Your heart. 
I leave my will at Calvary, 
Taking on a nature humbled by Your scars. 
For I know it's only through Your love, 
That who I am is hidden by Your grace. 
Let my desires be overshadowed, 
As I recall the purpose of that place. 

(Chorus)

Hide me behind the cross, 
Where my gains become as loss. 
And only Your glory is in view. 
Your power will be revealed 
The more that I am concealed. 
Hide me behind the cross 
So the world sees only You. 

Verse 2

If I rely on my strength 
To be a source of hope for those in need, 
The only profit I would gain 
Would be the empty honor of my deeds. 
But with all of self behind Your cross, 
The splendor of Your love stands free to shine. 
Illuminating with Your power, 
Reaching souls so You alone are glorified.
Blessings,
