|You Did This For Me|

Lost deep in my thoughts, I look at the cross and ask myself,
how could someone love me as much as You,
to die such a death, to save this sinful soul?


They crowned You with thorns,
mocking You, for claiming to be a king
their shame and filth showed, as they spit upon You.

You were beaten to Your knees,
and whipped over and over again
more than any man could ever bare…


Your blood trickled down Your body,
and I didn’t know it then, but as You hung from the cross,
Your blood was cleansing my soul.


Who would be so selfless, to die for someone like me?
Someone who gives grace, to a sinner as undeserving as me.
You gave Your life, so I could be forgiven and set
free.


I can’t imagine the pain You must have went through,
when my sins fell upon Your shoulder, and the Father looked away.
You said, “It is finished.” and then You slipped away.

Some days it’s hard for me to understand…
how could someone love me as much as You,
to die such a death, to save this sinful soul?
