I often wonder why he took so much
pain and grief,and just for me he died.
He left his throne in glory,and counted
it but loss. To come to earth and die
on an old rugged cross. He said:
"Father forgive them for they know not what they do"
as they beat him and scourged him,and
he did it just for you. Then he cried "IT IS FINISHED"!
As he died for you and me. That we might go to heaven, and
live eternally. When I think of the cross of Jesus
I wonder day to day why people scoff and say
I can Find another way. For Jesus is the only one
that saves and sets men free.
And that's why my Savior died on the cross of Calvary!
