At the Foot of the Cross

by Pastor Craig Schill

At the foot of the cross we are equal: a King
or a queen;
pastor, parishioner, grandparent, or teen.
Every nation and tribe, people, and tongue;
all of us equal before God’s steadfast love.

At the foot of the cross we have the same past.
Once dead, we all sinned, rebelled, and transgressed.

The judgment of God was coming our way;
heavy, ugly sins to be weighed and judged on that Day.


But God in His mercy

But God in His love

But God in His grace

Sent His Son from above!


And we cursed Him, we hurt Him, He died on a cross.
How could He still love us? Still seek the lost?

At the foot of the cross we are equal, you see –
We have the same past, and we’ve all been set free.

Not by works, nor by might, not by some clever plan;
By God’s grace we moved from Death Valley to Grace-land!

We are unified now, on a mission as one!
This is God’s longing that we all serve His Son;
in unity, harmony, oneness embraced;
masterpieces all – new creations of grace.

At the foot of the cross we are equal – a King
Or a queen;
Pastor, parishioner, grandparent, or teen.
Every nation, and tribe, people, and tongue;
All of us equal before God’s steadfast love.
