There was One who was willing to die
|There was One who was willing to die in my stead,
That a soul so unworthy might live,
And the path to the cross He was willing to tread
All the sins of my life to forgive.
|They were borne on the cross,
They were borne on the cross,
O how much He was willing to bear!
With what anguish and loss,
Jesus went to the cross!
But He carried my sins with Him there.
|He is tender and loving and patient with me,
While He cleanses my heart of its dross;
But “there’s no condemnation,” I know I am free,
For my sins were all borne on the cross.
|I will cling to my Savior and never depart—
I will joyfully journey each day,
With a song on my lips and a song in my heart,
That my sins have been taken away.
