Hillsong United, “Scandal of Grace”

Australian praise and worship Hillsong United has released Scandal of Grace as the carrier single of their new album, Zion. This song masterfully describes in no uncertain unsanitized terms the sacrifice of Christ on the cross and the implications that His death has on those who choose to believe. Brilliantly crafted and expertly sung, Scandal of Grace is another gem in the impressive discography of this consistently excellent worship group.

SCANDAL OF GRACE Lyrics
Hillsong United

Grace, what have You done?
Murdered for me on that cross
Accused in absence of wrong
My sin washed away in Your blood

Too much to make sense of it all
I know that Your love breaks my fall
The scandal of grace, You died in my place
So my soul will live

Oh to be like You
(To) Give all I have just to know You
Jesus, there’s no one besides You
Forever the hope in my heart

Death, where is your sting?
Your power is as dead as my sin
The cross has taught me to live
In mercy, my heart now to sing

The day and its trouble shall come
I know that Your strength is enough
The scandal of grace, You died in my place
So my soul will live

Oh to be like You
(To) Give all I have just to know You
Jesus, there’s no one besides You
Forever the hope in my heart

And it’s all because of You, Jesus
It’s all because of You, Jesus
It’s all because of Your love
And my soul will live

Oh to be like You
(To) Give all I have just to know You
Jesus, there’s no one besides You
Forever the hope in my heart

Oh to be like You
(To) Give all I have just to know You
Jesus, there’s no one besides You
Forever the hope in my heart

Oh to be like You
(To) Give all I have just to know You
Jesus, there’s no one besides You
