On the cross Jesus carried the pain of the world.
It whipped at His life like a banner unfurled.
Nothing we know could e’er match His pain,
Nor can we fathom all mankind’s disdain.
He loved us so much He walked down this path.
To save us from sin, He suffered such wrath.
He chose the cross, accepting it’s “cup”
That we through eternity with Him might sup.
Forgive us, dear Lord, should we drive a nail
Or by careless action Your great love assail.
Forgive us, dear Lord, if we bring a thorn
Which might cause another to sin or to scorn.
Never has such love been poured out on man
As that which He gave, but this was God’s plan.
All glory be given to the Lamb Who was slain,
Who forever will rule and forever will reign!
“Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God,
be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen.”
I Timothy 1:17 KJV
