12. Christ crucified

"12. Without faith in the risen Christ, faith in the crucified Jesus lacks confirmation and authorization. Without faith in the cross, faith in the risen Christ lacks it distinctive character and decisiveness. The ultimate distinctive feature of Christianity is Jesus Christ as the Crucified."
Hans Küng

Now also available as an anthem for SATB choir and organ.

   

There have been many messianic leaders,
Many charismatic prophets.
There is only one crucified Christ.

He is risen; He is Lord.
He is risen; He is Lord.

Many are the founders of religions,
And cults of personality.
There is only one crucified Christ.

He is risen; He is Lord.
He is risen; He is Lord.

There have been many dreamers of dreams,
Many heroes and heroines.
There is only one crucified Christ.

He is risen; He is Lord.
He is risen; He is Lord.

Many are the warring ideologies,
The brilliant thinkers.
There is only one crucified Christ.

He is risen; He is Lord.
He is risen; He is Lord.
