What made You die for me

1
What made You, Lord, to die for me?
Why would You die for me, Your enemy?
You took my place to hang on a tree,
To be a curse, a curse for me.
  What made You die for me?
I was Your enemy.
Lord, You became a curse for me.
Oh, what a mystery!
My God, You died for me!
You died for me, Your enemy.
2
I never thought that You would be
So full of love and tender mercy.
How could You love a person like me?
You loved me, dear Jesus, Your enemy.
3
You loved me, Lord, so very long;
And with a love enduring and strong.
Although I mocked and cursed You so long,
You waited and prayed for me all along.
4
I was a man who was just sin,
Which issued in a life full of sins.
My heart toward You was in rebellion,
But, Lord, You touched me with Your compassion.
  Your love has conquered me,
Even Your enemy.
In love, dear Lord, You came to me.
Nothing could change me
But love and mercy.
Your love, dear Lord, has conquered me.
5
One little turn and You were there,
Waiting for me with Your loving care.
How could I still remain Your enemy?
Your love, dear Jesus, disarmed me.

One of the most touching songs even before I came to believe in Him.

Still brings me to tears.

Nothing could change me... but God's Love!

1.Điều gì làm Ngài chết thay tôi rày, Từng thù nghịch Ngài, sao Chúa lại chịu chết thay? Yêu tôi Jesus đã đến chết trên thập tự vì tôi, Và Ngài mang rủa sả thế tôi.

ĐK: Vì cớ sao chết thế tôi, Kẻ từng chống nghịch con Trời? Vì Tôi Chúa chịu làm nên rủa sả.

Ồ quá cao sâu tuyệt vời! Chúa Trời chết thay con người, Dù Tôi đã thù nghịch Ngài Chúa ôi.

Tình Chúa chinh phục chính Tôi, Kẻ từng chống nghịch Con Trời, Tìm tôi với một tình yêu vô đối.

Điều đã khiến tôi đỗi thay, chính tình ái xót thương này. Tình yêu bắt phục, tình yêu lớn thay!

2. Lòng Ngài đầy mến yêu vô bờ, Dịu dàng và đầy thương xót, lòng này đâu ngờ. Ô sao Jesus yêu kẻ như tôi từng là tội nhân, Dù cho Tôi chống nghịch Ngài bao lần.

3. Lòng Ngài hằng trìu mến tôi lâu rồi, Tình Ngài nồng nàn tha thiết trường tồn muôn đời. Tuy tôi bao năm xa cách, chỉ xem thường Ngài, từng gièm chê, Ngài cầu thay, vẫn mong chờ tôi về.

This hymn touches me profoundly. It exposes our condition before the Lord gained us, we were His enemies. But such a mysterious love constrain us and there is nothing more we can do but surrender to the Lord Jesus. Amazing LOVE, GRACE and MERCY for all!

"If a man has committed a sin deserving of death, and he is put to death and you hang him on a tree, his body shall not remain overnight on the tree, but you shall surely bury him that day, so that you do not defile the land which the Lord your God is giving you as a inheritance; for he who is hanged is accursed of God." (Deuteronomy 21:22-23) Jesus Christ on that cross was accursed for us, He died on our place, so let's all in one accord give praises to the Almighty God for His ultimate sacrifice for us on that tree. JESUS CHRIST IS LORD!!!

I like this song. It's my exact experience. All the years questioning, reasoning and blaming the Lord but He waited and prayed for me. His love has conquered me. Lord I was Your enemy but now, am Your lover. I love You dear Lord Jesus.
