Friend, have you ever wondered why Jesus died?
All His matchless splendour was laid aside
coming as a servant, He took the pain
There is mighty hope and love for you to gain.
Who would leave a kingdom for a hostile land?
trade a home of riches for a shed?
Who would leave the praises of adoring crowds
bear the scorn of hateful men instead?
Who who leave a kingdom for a crown of thorns?
who could follow through with such a plan?
Making such a rare and startling sacrifice
Jesus came to save the sinful man.
