04 Battle for fhe eternal destiny Of Humankind
IV - The price was paid
There sin upon sin upon His body were laid
as for the iniquity of man the price He paid.
'My God, why have You forsaken me? ' He cried
as the filth and stench of sin, Father and Son divide.
Separated from God, alone He hung upon the tree.
By His stripes we were healed from our iniquity.
There stricken and smitten of God was He then.
Bruised and wounded for the transgressions of men.
The sin of mankind upon His body was laid
as lash by lash the price for each one He paid.
Wounded there He bore the wrath of Mighty God
and paid the penalty for men's sin by His blood.
His body was pierced and His blood was shed
and men placed a crown of thorns upon His head.
The leprosy of our sin could only be borne by Christ.
No other price could be paid. Only His sacrifice.
'Father forgive', was His great cry to heaven
as deep into His flesh the nails were driven.
The pain and suffering He bore that awful day
was to pay for our sins. There was no other way.
but He was persistent, fighting against the foe
determined to deliver us from our sinful woe.
'It is finished' was His mighty victorious cry
and to death He submitted His body to die.
