Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God,
Who takes away our sin,
He came the sinless Son of God
To cleanse our hearts within
He hung upon the blood-stained cross
Thinking of you and me,
Dying like some hardened criminal,
His body in agony
His blood flowed down from the cross;
His body tormented with pain
He cried out to His Heavenly Father,
But it seemed no answer came
People stood and jeered at Him,
Mocking to the end
Who Jesus was and why He came,
They couldn't comprehend
Their hearts were indifferent to the Lord;
Their consciences grew ever cold
His mother watched on - unable to bear it
As the sword pierced through her soul
As you try to grasp this picture,
The pain that Christ went through,
Remember that day you were on His mind,
He endured it all for you
Just so you could know His love
And forgiveness for your sins,
To know His resurrection power
And to have His life within
He cares that much about your life,
He endured the cross for you
Like those who jeered, or those who loved,
With Jesus - what will you do?
