"He Gave Himself" Lyrics

album:

genre:
-

before the fall of man, God has a perfect plan
to fellowship with us was his desire
but Adam disobey to sin became a slave
now a perfect sacrifice would be required
an ofring has been made, the sin that must be paid
so God and man now reconciled be
so Jesus said "I'll go" because he loves me so
he shed his blood to pay sin's penalty
chorus
he gave himself to pay a debt i could not pay
when i was lost he gave himself to be my way
though i deserve to be upon that cross that day
in love he took my place and gave himself

no greater love is known
no greater love is shown
then when one lays his life down for a friend
but Jesus died for me when i was his enemy
a love like this i cannot comprehend
chorus
he gave himself to pay a debt i could not pay
when i was lost he gave himself to be my way
though i deserved to be upon that cross that day
in love he took my place and gave himself
bridge
my nails were in his hand
my crown of thorns he wore
my stripe were on his head
my heavy cross he bore
and when God turn his back
he turn it on my sin
Jesus won the victory that i could never win
chorus
he gave himself to pay a debt i could not pay
when i was lost he gave himself to be my way
though i deserved to be upon that cross that day
in love he took my place and gave himself
in love he took my place and gave himself
he gave himself
