(Short introduction)

(Verse 1)
There I stood condemned to die
For the sin that I had done,
With the gavel of the Judge soon to fall.
Jesus took my place instead,
For my sinful soul he bled,
There upon the cross He gladly paid it all!

(Chorus)
Jesus died in my place,
He was nailed by the hands of men
And hung there in disgrace.
Jesus died for my sin,
Now reborn by His loving grace,
I gladly give my life to Him.

(Verse 2)
As He hung upon the cross
Bearing all the weight of sin,
Jesus blessed the hands that nailed Him to the tree.
Looking far beyond His loss
To the crown that He would win,
And the home he would
prepare for you and me.

(Repeat Chorus)
Jesus died in my place,
He was nailed by the hands of men
And hung there in disgrace.
Jesus died for my sin,
Now reborn by His loving grace,
I gladly give my life to Him.

(Bridge)
And as His blood was falling,
To the earth His life descending,
His love was reaching to me,
Cleansing me from sin.

(Repeat Chorus)
Jesus died in my place,
He was nailed by the hands of men
And hung there in disgrace.
Jesus died for my sin,
Now reborn by His loving grace,
I gladly give my life to Him.

(Raise Key and Repeat Chorus)
Jesus died in my place,
He was nailed by the hands of men
And hung there in disgrace.
Jesus died for my sin,
Now reborn by His loving grace,
I gladly give my life to Him.

This song is no less than "Because He Lives, Something Beautiful" or "Amazing Grace" and should be flooding churches and air ways everywhere.
