From the good folk at Mars Hill Audio Journal:

"I may be wrong about this, but it seems that Christian lyricists these days

appropriate the victory before they carry the Cross; or they will rejoice that

Jesus bore the bitter wood for our sins, but do not consider that every one

of our sins was a thorn upon his brow, or a jagged stone to cut his feet

as he fought his slow way up to the Skull Place."
