The cruellest death
Endured for me,
Love in action,
Shown unconditionally.

Spikes between bones,
Thorns on his head,
Stripped and whipped,
Deserted by friends.
Christ of the Heavens,
In a life-changing plan
To die for me.
Did he scream, did he shout?
Did he really not feel pain?
As the sword pierced his side
And the life-blood drained out.

Why did a man hung on a cross
Pay so dearly for me?
Suffocation for Salvation –
Why did a man hung on a cross
Die willingly for me?
