Lyrics

No greater love has any man
Than he who lays down his life for a friend
Jesus how rich is Your love
The very heart of our Father above

This is Your body, this is Your blood
Spilled on the cross for the sins of the world
I am broken by this love without end
I am saved by the blood of a friend

How can this all be truly real
This great love Your cross reveals
You tore the veil and beckoned me
To follow You on to Calvary

Let this be more than bread to me
May this cup be more than wine to me
It’s Your body that’s broken, Your blood that was spilled
It’s the stripes You were given, the thorns and the nails
May it strengthen my heart, may it strengthen my mind
To fathom the depths of this love Divine
Oh the breadth and the length and the height and the depth
Of this love that You gave, that You gave to Your friends
Oh the great mystery, we enter the great mystery
