My Sin Upon The Cross

© M. Scott Worthington - 08/04/13

When I hear Your Name
Do I feel Your pain
When You're near I think I see a stain
My sin upon the cross

Do I hear Your voice
Are You calling out my name
I wonder and I turn around
Am I turning back to You

[Are You there, Jesus?]

I fall down
When I hear Your Name
I break down
When I feel Your pain
I look up
I see the stain
My sin upon the cross

Then I hear
I hear Your voice
As You're calling out my name
I wonder
I turn around
I am turning back to You

There You are Jesus (2)
There you are
There you are
There You are Jesus

[CHORUS]
There You are Jesus
Holding out Your hand to me
I see You've left the stain
My sin upon the cross

Now I see
Now I see
Now I see You Jesus (x2)

Now I see You Jesus
Holding out Your hand to me
I see You've left the stain
My sin upon the cross

I see
Now I see
Now I see You Jesus

I see You Jesus
Holding out Your hand to me
I see You've left the stain
My sin upon the cross

08/04/2013 - As I was revising the edit this weekend, I discovered a paradigm shift in the first two verse sections; The singer is hearing about Jesus and questioning. As the concept grew in my thoughts, I placed, "Are You there?" and, "Are You really there?" into the first 4-bar instrumental break and the rest sorta fell into place. I'm still re-working the first two verses to incorporate that concept... (removed obsolete link)

When I hear
When I hear Your Name
When I feel
When I feel Your pain
When You're near
When I see the stain
Of my sin upon the cross

Then I hear
Then I hear Your voice
As You're calling out my name
And I wonder
And I turn around
I am turning back to You

(Instrumental)

I fall down
When I hear Your Name
I break down
When I feel Your pain
I look up
And I see the stain
Of my sin upon the cross

Then I hear
Then I hear Your voice
As You're calling out my name
And I wonder
And I turn around
I am turning back to You

There You are
Jesus (x4)
Holding out Your hand to me
I see You've left the stain
Of my sin upon the cross

Now I see
Jesus (x3)
Now I see You
Jesus
Holding out Your hand to me
I see You've left the stain
Of my sin upon the cross

Interesting notes: The lyrics were completed by adding the word "You" after "Now I see" in the last chorus. In the original recording, "You" didn't make it to the vocal part. It will be re-recorded at some point. The arrangement could change a bit for full-band instrumentation. Also, the original name was "When I Hear." When singing and working out the melody, "Upon The Cross" stuck out more as the hook - so I changed the name after it was recorded.
