I Understand

Rating: 4.9
I understand your pain;
I've partaken of your loss;
Though I could have had great gain,
I but chose an ugly cross.

My life was filled with grief;
Disappointment followed me;
But I never sought relief
From the shame that had to be.

Yielding to my Father's plan
To reveal His love for all,
I took death for every man,
Paying for the sinner's fall.

I knelt down to bind the wound
Dealt by Satan on the world.
'Twas resentment that I found;
Stones against my breast were hurled.

In rejection, I loved on;
Though despised, I trusted yet.
Though I suffered all alone,
My prize I dared not to forfeit.

For to walk with you today,
Hold you up to bear my name,
Lead you in my Father's way,
Is the reason that I came.
