lyrics

VERSE 1
Let us go up to the place
Where our burdens tumbled down
To recall His mournful face
The nails and wounds and thorny crown
Where punishment that we deserved
Was measured out on One so pure
O what a place, is this
The beginning of our bliss

VERSE 2
O how dark that empty tomb
That swallowed death in victory
Where sorrow brings eternal rest
Where death brings life eternally
Where streams of tears and shouts of joy
Bring forth an everlasting song
O what a place, is this
The beginning of our bliss

CHORUS
Burdens fall down
Souls are unbound
What a cross, what a tomb, what a Savior
Burdens fall down
Souls are unbound
What a cross, what a tomb, what a Savior

VERSE 3
We must look and look again
At the wonders of the cross
Filthy rags have been removed
We are clothed in righteousness
And as we stand at journey’s end
Heaven’s gates will open wide
O what a place, is this
The beginning of our bliss
