WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF IT WAS YOU WHO WAS BETRAYED WITH A KISS?
WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF IT WAS YOU BEING KILLED WHILE INNOCENT?
WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF IT WAS YOU BEING BEAT WITH A BARBED WIRE CHAIN?
WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF IT WAS YOU WHO HAD TO SUFFER AND ENDURE PAIN?
WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF IT WAS YOU DYING A SINNERS DEATH?
IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN YOU BUT JESUS KNEW WE WOULD NOT PASS THE TEST.
WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF IT WAS YOU BEING NAILED UPON A CROSS?
WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF IT WAS YOU WHO WAS WHIPPED AND BLOOD WAS LOST?
HOW WOULD YOU FEEL IF YOU WERE PUNCHED AND SPIT ON FOR NO CAUSE?
JESUS ENDURED THIS AND SO MUCH MORE SO OUR SOULS WOULD NOT BE LOST.
HOW MANY TIMES DID YOU THANK HIM FOR TRADING PLACES WITH YOU?
HOW MANY TIMES DID YOU REJOICE AND PRAISE AND WORSHIP TOO?
WHAT WOULD IT TAKE TO MAKE IT RIGHT AND GIVE YOUR LIFE TO CHRIST?
AFTER ALL HE PAID THE PRICE FOR SINNERS LIKE YOU AND I.
IT HURT SO BAD TO KNOW THE PAIN MY SAVIOR HAD TO ENDURE.
IT FEELS SO GOOD TO KNOW I AM HEALED BECAUSE OF THE STRIPES JESUS BORE.
THANK YOU JESUS
