Here at the Cross
Stories of Forgiveness
|Beginning and ending with the upbeat, celebratory anthem, It Happened at the Cross, arranger and orchestrator Phil Nitz takes us on a journey to the depths of grief and the heights of victory. And just as he seamlessly weaves new songs and well-loved hymns together, we are reminded of the past yet look ahead to all that the cross means for us as believers in Jesus Christ. |
Your congregation will be moved by the narrative testimonies between songs that describe a personal connection to the peace we find in the cross, the grace that is offered by the cross, the beauty that resides in the cross, and finally, the invitation to come to the cross. While these testimonies are given in the score, you are encouraged to seek out testimonies from your own congregation to let the heartfelt stories of your people bring your Easter presentation to life.
With a beautiful blend of inspiring music and powerful stories, Here at the Cross is a stirring musical that will leave you deeply grateful for God s redeeming work in your own life and the life of all followers of Jesus through the cross. Add it to your seasonal plans today!
