Verse 1
I think about Jesus when He lived on earth,
Did He know His purpose here from His holy birth?
And how did He go through it all knowing the pain He felt?
When judgment on this world of ours He could have swiftly dealt!
But he was a man who came and gave his life for the world he loved,
No one knows where or when but he's coming again to take us to glory above!
Verse 2
Oh how did Jesus endure our human pride, or the cruelty of the soldiers as they pierced His holy side?
and how did He go through it all knowing the pain He felt when judgment on the mocking crowd he could have swiftly dealt?
How did He leave his throne in heaven to be alone in a world which loved him not and yet he bought our lives with his own blood?
His love opened a place to look on His face in glory above!
