Would be more than I could believe;
But Your love lifted You up to be crucified instead of me.
You were pleased to look upon me,
Though I didn't see You at all;
But now it's clear, Your love is dearer than anything I have loved before.
charcoal by Carolyn-Elizabeth
Oh, the life You lived! Oh, the death You bore!
Your resurrection is my only cure.
Oh, You forgave my debts! One day I'll soar
Into Your heavenly world.
When I love my life more than Yours,
It's a tiresome burden to bear;
You rescue me beyond degree;You take the weight of my cares.
