I weep because it was my sin
That nailed my Lard upon the tree;
I am not worthy of such love,
That He should die for even me.
They crucified the Lamb of God,
He died my spirit to set free;
the Holy One was put to death,
A sacrifice for even me.
I Corinthians 5:7.
Why did they scourge the Son of God?
Or place the thorns upon His head?
It was my crimes deserved the rod,
He suffered for my sins instead.
I Peter 2:24
They mocked and smote my blessed Lord,
Because I scorned His holy name;
I'm guilty - so declares the word,
But Jesus took my sin and shame.
Forsaken by the God above -
Although with power to be free;
The Just One smitten! O what love!
He gave his life for even me.
I Timothy 1:15
O Captain of my rescued soul,
Whose face in glory I shell see;
My Lord, my King, my all in all,
Accept the praise of even me.
- G.W. Elliott
