Thorns in the crown, nails in the hand,
spear in the side; all sharp as planned.
The sting of the cross, the agony and the pain,
the Lord suffered loss so that we would gain;
victory over sin, life lived in triumph, not defeat,
the Lord paid the cost, it was bitter, it was sweet.
A sacrifice was made from love that was strong
when the Lord offered Himself to pay for our wrong.
