I Deserved the Cross

As gentle as a Lamb
To the slaughter He was led
He did not say a word
As the blood flowed from His head

The cruelty they showed Him
He took with tender grace
The agone He suffered
He endured to take my place

I deserved the cross yet He took it all for me
I deserved the stripes that He took to set me free
I deserved the nails that pierced His feet and hands
I deserved the cross that Jesus bore for me

With the power of a lion
He rose up from the dead
Victory was in His hand
A crown upon His head

Not the crown of thorns they gave Him
But a royal crown of gold
Now He rules all of heaven
All of earth and all below

I deserved the cross yet He took it all for me
I deserved the stripes that He took to set me free
I deserved the nails that pierced His feet and hands
I deserved the cross that Jesus bore for me

He died to take my sin
He rose to give me life
Hallelujah, He has risen
Hallelujah He’s alive

I deserved the cross yet He took it all for me
I deserved the stripes that He took to set me free
I deserved the nails that pierced His feet and hands
I deserved the cross that Jesus bore for me
