The Agony on the Cross

Posted by margaretpeterson - March 3rd, 2016




How cruel the death that Jesus chose

To free us from our sin…

Who but He could bear the pain

And our salvation win?


A thief was hung on either side;

One could see that He

Should never have been put to die

Here on Calvary.


Who but Christ could think of us?

Seven times He spoke

He gave us Mary for our Mother,

Her heart said, “yes,” but broke.


No one else could die for us.

No one else could pay

The price so all of us could have

A Resurrection Day.
