Written by Phil Cross
There is a key only one key.
Unlocking everything, one of a kind.
Put in a place for everyone to see,
There for every whosoever will to find.
There on the tree, they placed the answer,
To peace and happiness, to everlasting love.
There on the cross, they placed the Savior.
Now the lost below can reach the God above.
I can unlock the shackles of sin’s prison,
Even open up the very gates of hell.
I can swing wide the doorway up to heaven,
All because the key was hung on a nail.
Christ is the key, the key that frees us.
That’s why I’ll spend the endless ages praising Jesus.
