I Wasn't There For You

Written by: Marycile Beer

I gaze at you upon the cross
And know deep down in my heart
I was responsible
For the plight that You went through

All though it happened long ago 
I wasn't even born
You took it upon Yourself
To save me from the scorn

I know I haven't always 
Made the right decisions
And those that I did make 
I did so with good intentions

It was Your laws that I did break
Those called the Ten Commandments
And You hang there upon the cross
For my indiscretions

And now today centuries later
You're still there for me to view
And all the memories come flooding back
I wasn't there for You
