Why Would A King

 

I watched as Jesus was crucified.

A river of blood flowed from His side.

I heard the ringing of the hammer

as they drove the nails in His hands.

And I wondered why.

Why would a King want to die like this?

Why would a King Want to lay down His life

for a sinner such as I?

Why would a King want to die for all the lost?

And Iím reminded love held Him to the cross.

He was a man, just like you and me.

He suffered all the pain and agony.

As they left Him on the cross that day

He cried, ďItís finished.Ē

As they walked away so tell me why.

Why would a King want to die like this?

Why would a King Want to lay down His life

for a sinner such as I?

Why would a King want to die for all the lost?

And Iím reminded love held Him to the cross.

Yes, Iím reminded love held Him to the cross.
