03 Battle for the eternal destiny of Humankind
III - The sacrifice was made
Then that awful day came in God's great plan
when He was taken aside by sinful man.
Made to climb the steep hill to Calvary's tree.
There He was to die for sin to set us free.
This world could not comprehend such love.
Coming from the heart of our God above.
So we took Him to that place of hate and pain
and nailed Him to a cross and had Him slain.
Upon Golgotha's hill the battle took place
the fight for the future of the human race.
In penalty for our sin His body was impaled
and upon the cross the Son of God was nailed.
The battle had to be fought and the victory won
by the Lord Jesus Christ, God's Only Son.
The warfare commenced on this earthly plain
as alone He hung there in agony and pain.
Those gathered around the cross looking on
ranted and raged saying 'If He is Gods Son'
'Let Him come down and leave the battle scene.'
But then how different things would have been.
