Here’s how “The Wonderful Cross” came into being:
“It came just at a sound check at a camp and Jesse the bass player was playing it on his bass. He was strumming it on the bass and I said, ‘I haven’t heard that hymn in a long time. I haven’t sung that hymn in a long time.’ I can remember as a kid, my mom would play that on the piano and the words were just amazing to me. In the middle of sound check I got up there with him and just started singing it. We started to play and I just started singing, ‘Oh the wonderful cross,’ just like that. Spontaneous. We were really into it and caught up in the moment. Then when we got to the studio we started putting it down and we wanted to really capture this hymn and give new life, not that we could add anything to those words but make it more into the music of our day.” – Chris Tomlin radio interview
