He Died That We Might Live


Come and see, come and see, come and see the King of love
See the purple robe and crown of thorns he wears
Soldiers mock, rulers sneer, as he lifts the cruel cross
Lone and friendless now he climbs towards the hill

We worship at your feet, where wrath and mercy meet
And a guilty world is washed by love's pure stream
For us he was made sin, Oh, help me take it in
Deep wounds of love cry out 'Father, forgive'
I worship, I worship, the Lamb who was slain.

Come and weep, come and mourn
For your sin that pierced him there
So much deeper than the wounds of thorn and nail
All our pride, all our greed, all our fallenness and shame
And the Lord has laid the punishment on him

Man of heaven, born to earth, to restore us to your heaven
Here we bow in awe beneath your searching eyes
From your tears comes our joy, 
From your death our life shall spring
By your resurrection power we shall rise

[Graham Kendrick 1989]
