Whipped and beaten time and time again, no rest
Hair ripped from his face and screaming "you're a fool"
Yet he let it happen when he could have killed them all with a look.
Every time the whip came down he thought of you.
Every time the soldiers mocked he looked into the future
Every time the crowd yelled crucify he winced in anticipation
Every time the women cried, he saw your face
Led to the hill he was stretched on the wood
The nails driven into his hands
Propped up for the carnival the world looked on
Then hung like a picture in a gallery
In and out his lungs gasped for air,
Struggling to hold on to life his mind focused on you
Accepting his mission he hung his head and gave it all
Dying he destroyed all hope of life until
Three days later in a tomb, rotting, then life trickled back in
The stone blew from the mountain and out walked Jesus
Alive, not dead, amazing not stupid
He rose again and destroyed satan's plans.
Now you play a game with the very life he gave on the tree
Spitting yet once again on the man who gave you a chance
Nailing yet another one into his hands
Can you see him cry out in pain?
Each breath says, you are mine!
Each blow says, I love you,
Each insult says, You were made for me
Each tear says, you are worth it to me.
Come back to me
Let me live in you
Live in me
It's what you know to be true
I love you....
