The Precious Cross

Chinese Church Voices is a weekly column of the ChinaSource Blog providing translations of original writing by Christians in China. The views represented are entirely those of the original author; inclusion in Chinese Church Voices does not imply or equal an endorsement by ChinaSource.


Over the past decade Streams of Praise, a music ministry based in the United States, has had a tremendous influence on church music in China, particularly in the urban house churches and youth services in the Three-Self churches.

Since they were founded in 1993, they have published more than 600 songs and released more than 50 albums. In addition, they have traveled all over the Mandarin-speaking world leading worship in Mandarin.

If you find yourself worshiping at a church in China, chances are you may sing this song, titled “The Precious Cross.” Enjoy this beautiful rendition
