Down in the depths of an almighty hell,
You spoke not a word but had plenty to tell,
They beat you with leather,
Ripped open your side,
Took all of your pride,
They pierced nails through your hands,
They pierced nails through your feet,
Embedded the thorns in your head so deep.
Your name they condemned,
Your truth did deny,
Some spit in your face,
You never did cry.
They hung you to die,
After torture did bear,
You hung on that cross,
To die so unfair.
After your death,
A cave you did lay,
A stone to conceal you,
They put you away,
The prayers of some mumbled,
They loved you so,
They couldn't believe,
The wrath of your foe,
The Heaven's they opened,
The stone rolled away,
A joyous occasion,
On that Easter Day.
Thank you Jesus for dying for my sins. Thank you for loving me so much that you would endure all the pain of your death. I honor you in all I do! I love you!
