In Your Place

Can you see Him
Bloodied
Beaten
Bruised
Nailed to a cross
In your place

Can you see Him
Suffering
Sacrificing
Solitary
Taking on sin
In your place

Can you hear Him
Thirsty
Forgiving
Compassion
Agony for hours
In your place

Can you hear Him
Cry out to God
Cry out to man
It is finished
Gave up His life
For you

Will you trust Him
Give Him your life
He gave His for you
When He died
In your place

Will you believe
Three days later
Rose from the grave
Our lives to save

Come to Him now
Give Him your life
Because He gave His
In your place

Washed Away

A crowd gathered in the street
Welcoming the King
Palm leaves scattered on the ground
Robes laid at His feet

Hosannah to the King who comes
Riding on a colt
Proclaiming highest praise to Him
Before the rocks cry out

He overturns the temple wares
Rebukes the Pharisees
Tells stories of hard times to come
The crowd now disbelieves

By night they take Him quickly
A fast and unfair trial
He stands before the crowd again
They shout crucify

A crowd gathered in the street
To mock this would be king
His body whipped and beaten down
He walks in suffering

Up to Calvary they go
Hands and feet are nailed
They raise Him up for all to see
A sign says He is Lord

Then He spoke three words of hope
Father forgive them
And all down through the ages
His mercy now does win

He gave His life that day for us
No one took it from Him
Through His sacrifice for us
He’s washed away our sin

Oh what a wonderful Savior
Who died that day for me
Purchased my salvation
From sin He set me free
