"On My Cross" as written by and Jeromy Deibler....
How wide is Your love
That You would stretch Your arms
And go around the world
And why for me would a Savior's cry be heard

I don't know
Why You went where I was meant to go
I don't know
Why You love me so

Those were my nails
That was my crown
That pierced Your hands and Your brow
Those were my thorns
Those were my scorns
Those were my tears that fell down
And just as You said it would be
You did it all for me
After You counted the cost
You took my shame, my blame
On my cross

How deep is Your grace
That you could see my need
And chose to take my place
And then for me, these words I'd hear You say

Father no
Forgive them for they know not what they do
I will go
Because I love them so

    General CommentThis song is about someone who realizes, in the flesh that Jesus exsisted and took their sins away, but that he himself should've carried his own sins and dealt with them himself, that it wasnt' fair to Jesus. My favorite line is for sure:How deep is Your grace
    That You could see my need
    And chose to take my place
    And then for me, these words I'd hear You say


    Father no
    Forgive them for they know not what they do
    I will go
    Because I love them so
    ....
    Because this appears in the Bible, I think in Matthew, and shows how deeply Jesus loved us.
    God Bless
