Your cross became my shield
Your crown of thorns my helmet of righteousness
Your blood and tears became a river of living water
Your death brought me to life.
Were you slaughtered in vain, O spotless lamb?
Why did you have to endure it alone?
Even the Father turned his head at Golgotha
The heavenly chorus hushed their song.
Death and darkness, it is finished!
Hear redemption's voice cry out as it
Drowns out Mary's sorrow with resurrection joy.
Jesus is alive and he suffers no more!
His robes are white and I am made clean
His stripes paid all of my debt
Oh the everlasting love of Jesus!
Friend of sinners, Lord of All.
