He Thought You Were Worth It

August 25, 2013

Slowly, with purpose

He walked through the streets

Each step He was taking

Your life He could see


Breathing in pain

Sores on His back

He suffered the shame

But His heart was intact


He knew that His mission

It must be fulfilled

There was no other way

Except Calvary’s hill


Looking at faces

His mind must have swirled

He kept the joy before Him

Of saving the world


Strong and determined

As His life blood poured out

He knew it was worth it

He ignored hell’s loud shout


As He hung on the cross

He gave out a cry

As He paid for our sins

Tears streamed from His eyes


Love kept Him there

We’ll never know

How bad was His suffering

The three days He was gone


Paying our penalty

As He hung on the cross

He knew what it took

To redeem all the lost


So now it’s our choice

To believe and receive

The beautiful gift

For which He did bleed
