I Should Have Been...

I Should Have Been Crucified


I was guilty with nothing to say
And they were coming to take me away
Then a voice from heaven was heard that said
Let him go take Me instead


And I should have been crucified
I should have suffered and died
I should have hung on the cross in disgrace
But Jesus, God's Son took my place


That crown of thorns, a spear in His side
And all the pain it should have been mine
Those rusty nails were meant for me
Oh but Christ took them and let me go free


And I should have been crucified
I should have suffered and died
I should have hung on the cross in disgrace
But Jesus God's Son took my place.


Yes Jesus God's Son
Oh Jesus God's Son
For Jesus God's Son took my place.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This song sums up the true reason we even have Easter. I'm the one who should have been crucified, but instead Jesus took my place. And for all of eternity I will get to praise His Name!

This is just a little fyi - I will be away for several days taking a break and having the song "The wheels on the bus go round and round!" go round and round through my head:o). A busload of EBA teens, homeschoolers, and chaperones are loading up the bus on Monday and heading out to the Midwest to compete in an Independent Baptist Student Convention all this week.


Good-bye sleep.


Hello caffeine:o).
