You were beaten and bruised,
for the sinful likes of me;
three nails pierced Your flesh,
as You were hungÖ at Calvary.

An unthinkable act of Love
was cruelly executed for me;
for You took the punishment,
that had beenÖ meant for me!

With forgiveness on Your breath,
You requested a pardon for those,
who carried out judgment on You,
as a death sentence was imposed.

A spear was thrust in Your side,
as Your demise was underscored;
when it was mundanely removed,
both blood and water had poured.

[chorus]
On The Cross of Calvary,
Love was brokenhearted;      
Salvation was paid in full;
Graceís flow was started.  

[bridge]
We donít fully understand,
Godís goodness towards us;
Sinís debt was wiped out,
by the sacrifice of Jesus.

We adore Him, since Christ
had truly loved us first;
He bore the painful brunt
of payment for Sinís curse.
