Verse 1

You reached from the sky

Leaving Heaven’s throne

I was meant to die

You wouldn’t let me go

 

The riches of Your grace

I could not afford

My guilt has been erased

Now I’m forever Yours

 

Chorus

Oh what a price You paid

Trading the highest place

You laid down Your crown for me

How great a King

 

Oh what a life You gave

You gave up everything

That You would die for me

How great a King

 

Verse 2

From death life has begun

A garden from the grave

Bursting through the night

Yours is the victory

 

Bridge

For all You are

And all You’ve done

We lift You up

Lift You up
