“Scandal of Grace” from Hillsong United’s “Zion”

    This week I chose to cover a special worship song by Hillsong United called “Scandal of Grace.” This song is performed by Matt Crocker, a worship leader and songwriter from the church in Australia. If you have been a Project Inspired reader for a while now, you will know that I have done a couple of covers from the worship band and also the other worship genres they have based out of the community!

    The song “Scandal of Grace” is basically about the power of the cross, and that what Jesus did was almost like a scandal–it was Him taking on our sins He didn’t commit. How great is that kind of love? God is so generous, giving, loving, merciful, abounding in grace and loves each and every person in this world. Listen to the lyrics of the song, they are deep and very impactful.


    Here are some of my favorite lyrics from the song: 

    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

    Listen to my acoustic raw version of “Scandal of Grace”:
