10 Modern Worship Songs on the Cross of Jesus Christ

Updated on January 5, 2016

The Cross of Jesus Christ is a place for all to receive forgiveness from God, a place of understanding and receiving God's love and His plan for mankind and a place of reconciliation to our Heavenly Father. Romans 10:9-10 says,

"That if you shall confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead, you shall be saved. For with the heart man believes unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation."

Many Hymns like The Old Rugged Cross, Near the Cross, At the Cross, There is Power in the Blood and others have so captured my heart for how our Lord has poured out his soul for us. More songs aimed towards the cross should be sung every Sunday and in services during the week, not just for Easter.

Here are some worship songs from music artists over the years, that have touched my heart and helped me always to remember the purpose of Christ's death and his sacrifice and love for all.

From Hillsong Music from Hillsong Church in Australia, sings from their heart and spirits about Jesus life, crucifixion and resurrection.

"Oh that rugged cross my salvation, Where your love poured out over me

Now my soul cries out Hallelujah, Praise and honor unto thee."

Hillsong- Man of Sorrows

Sovereign Grace Music in their song, Jesus Thank You brings a full understanding of why Jesus Died on the Cross for us.

"Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand and rejoice in hope of the glory of God." Romans 5:1-2 (Bible)

Worship Leaders, Brian and Jenn Johnson from Bethel Church in Redding, CA sings a wonderful beautiful song, What would I have done, how we must never forget the price Jesus paid for us on the cross.

"I will not forget the cross, the pain that You endured for us
Where You carried brokenness and shame
Never to forget the day Your love broke through to make a way
For hope to rise within my heart again

What would I have done if it wasn't for Your love
The love that tore the veil inside my heart
What would I have become if it wasn't for Your blood
The blood You gave for all on the cross."

Worship leader and songwriter, Chris Tomlin with Christy Nockels, in his brand new song, Jesus Son of God. This is from his album, Passion: White Flag. This is a true inspirational song that will deeply minister life and draw us to the cling to the Cross.

"On the altar of our praise, Let there be no higher name
Jesus Son of God, You laid down Your perfect life
You are the sacrifice, Jesus Son of God
You are Jesus Son of God

You took our sin, You bore our shame
You rose to life, You defeated the grave
A love like this, the world has never known."

Chris Tomlin & Christy Nockels- Jesus Son of God

This song Great, Great God is from Gateway Worship Team from Gateway church in Texas. It tells of the importance of the cross Of Christ and what it does for us personally.

The amazing song, Victor's Crown is from well known Worship Leader, Darlene Zschech. It was written by Kari Jobe, Israel Houghton and Darlene Zschech as well. This is taken from the latest album of these unique worship leaders. This is a phenomenal anointed album that will draw you to the heart of Christ that will keep you thirsting more of the Lord. Here are some of the lyrics:

"At the cross the work was finished
You were buried in the ground
But the grave could not contain You
For You wear the Victor's crown

You have overcome
You have overcome
Jesus You have overcome the world

Every high thing must come down
Every stronghold shall be broken
You wear the Victor's crown
You overcome, You overcome

Anointed Worship leader and Songwriter, Paul Baloche in his song, To the Cross tells of how we should run to the Cross of Jesus Christ, surrender all and receive freedom and forgiveness.

Contemporary Christian singer and songwriter, Phil Wickham in his song, This is Amazing Grace, expressed his heart of all that the cross accomplished.

"For by grace are you saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God." Ephesians 2:8

Contemporary Music Artist, Natalie Grant, in her amazing song, The Power of the Cross.

Contemporary Band, Casting Crowns in their inspiring song, Glorious (Living He loved me).

For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. (John 3:16)


From the Australian Group, Hillsong Worship, comes the song, Calvary.

From Contemporary Worship Leader, Kari Jobe comes the song, The Cross is my Confession
