Gods Only Son
He was God's only Son, who came here, for us, to go to Calvary.
It was the only way to wipe away our sins and win the victory.
He was wounded for our transgressions, bruised for our sin,
And it's with His stripes, Oh Lord,
that we are healed and well again.
He shall grow up as a tender plant, a root out of dry ground.
It is said, 'He hath no beauty we should desire.' But, a Savior I have found.
He is despised and rejected of men;
a man of sorrows, I read,
And from Him men's faces were hid.
Let us plant good seed.
He offered up His dear life to pay for our sin on Calvary, that day;
Walked up a hill, with thorns in His head, for our sins He went to pay.
I love Thee, Oh, my Lord.
Thank you for taking away death's sting.
And, in believing in His only Son,
true freedom it will bring.
Thank you for bearing my grief, when Thou were not esteemed by man.
You carried our sorrows. We esteemed Him stricken, smitten, in the land.
All like sheep have gone astray. Even as He gave His life, all went away.
He was oppressed and afflicted, and opened not His mouth a word to say.
He conquered evil, through the Cross, upon Calvary that awesome day.
So, let us pick up our cross and follow in His footsteps, all the way,
Looking for a brighter tomorrow; up there with the Father and He,
Who bore the heavy old cross and gave His sweet life, there at Calvary.
