2011. Based on a spontaneous song sung at City Church Cambridge, 2010.


I see you in a garden, kneeling there in darkness
Making there the choice that saved the world
I see you on a hillside; your arms are opened out wide
Bearing all my sin, you saved the world

Great is the King
Riding out in victory
Worthy of praise
Crowned with joy in majesty, majesty

I see you in a garden, buried in the darkness
Shrouded in our shame and wrapped in death
I see you in the sunrise, walking in the morning
Death is overcome; you are alive

You are the only Savior
You are the only Healer
You are the only Finder of our souls
You are the risen Savior
You are the glorious Healer
You are the only Conqueror of our souls

I see you in a city, beautiful in splendor
All of heaven and earth are made anew
I see you in your glory, saints and angels singing
By the Father’s side you rule the world
