One day they took my Savior,
And led Him up Calvary's way;
A crown of thorns adorned Him,
As He trudged along the way;
The cross He bore was so heavy,
That He fell beneath the load;
They sent Him one named Simon
To help Him bear the load;
Hi s heart was filled with sorrow-
With the sins and load He bore;
Yet still He went determined
To do His Father's will;
He cried, "Remove this bitter cup,
But alas, Thy will, oh Yahweh, I'll do!"
He is the perfect sacrifice,
The holy Lamb of Yah;
He is the only One so worthy
To pay the price for you and me;
So, up the hill they journeyed
To the top of Mt. Calvary;
They nailed Him there to a cruel tree,
With a spear they pierced His side;
The blood of the Lamb flowed freely,
Making redemption's plan a reality!
Oh, to be bought with such a price
Our blessed Savior had to pay!
He paid the cost so lovingly-
Yahweh alone could make this plan
That man could be redeemed!
