CRUCIFY! by Carl Gooch

Crucify
It was my sin that cried out crucify, crucify;
It was because of me, my savior had to die.
Only the purest of pure could pay the price,
Only the Lamb of God could be the sacrifice.
I thought I was so wise, I thought I was sly;
But I could not pay, sins debt was too high.
To the wicked way of the world I was a slave;
He was the only one who had the power save.
I seemed doomed, so deeply lost in sin was I;
Without His love and mercy I would surely die.
Though I didn’t deserve it, mercy he did show;
He suffered and died so forgiveness I may know.
It was my sin that cried out crucify, crucify;
It was because of me, my savior had to die.
Only the purest of pure could pay the price,
Only the Lamb of God could be the sacrifice.
This tear you see is a tear of joy in my eye,
For God loved me so much, He came to die.
His grace abounds; a new life to me he gave.
In Him I can live free from death and the grave.
