The Perfect Sacrifice

You can feel the agony in Jesus' voice
As He said Father not my will but Thine,
He agonized in pain, as sweat poured
From His face, as blood that would be
Shed for all time.

Can't you see the blood there upon your fingers
From the sins that drove the nails to the cross,
As guilty Jesus died, but the guilt is yours and mine
For we deserved to be there on that cross,
Oh a hundred, thousand, million times I'm sorry
For having nailed my Savior to a tree,
Innocent blood was shed as the precious Lamb did die
As Christ became the perfect Sacrifice.

You can hear the echoes of the saints in glory
As they thunder forth their praise before the throne,
Christ will soon come back again
to consummate His Father's plan and the
Saints will be with Jesus for all time.

Can't you see the blood there upon your fingers
From the sins that drove the nails to the cross,
As guilty Jesus died, but the guilt is yours and mine
For we deserved to be there on that cross,
Oh a hundred, thousand million times I'm sorry
For having nailed my Savior to a tree,
Innocent blood was shed as the precious Lamb did die
As Christ became the perfect Sacrifice.
