I TOOK IT FOR YOU



MY CHILD, IT'S TRUE,

AND ITS TIME TO SEE

I TOOK YOUR BONDAGE

THAT YOU WOULD BE FREE!


I TOOK THE BEATINGS

THE BRUISING AND STRIPES,

THAT YOU WOULD BE HEALED

AND LEAD OTHERS TO LIFE!


I TOOK THE CURSES,

THE RANTINGS, THE SCREAMS,

THAT YOU WOULD HAVE REST,

AND LIE DOWN BY COOL STREAMS!


I TOOK THE THIRST

WHILE HANGING IN SHAME,

THAT YOU'D DRINK LIVING WATERS

NEVER BEING THE SAME!


I TOOK SEPARATION,

FROM FATHER ABOVE,

THAT YOU COULD FOREVER

BASK IN HIS LOVE!


I TOOK THE NAILS

IN MY HANDS AND FEET,

SO YOU COULD WALK, TOUCHING

ALL LIVES YOU WILL MEET!


I TOOK THE BLAME

FOR ALL YOU DO,

PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE

LET NO GUILT WEIGH ON YOU!


I TOOK THE SHAME,

OF DEATH ON THE CROSS,

SO YOU WOULD HAVE LOVE ,

NOT TASTING SUCH LOSS!


I TOOK YOUR PLACE,

HANGING ON THAT TREE,

NOW YOU TAKE MY PLACE

GO SET MY PEOPLE FREE!


YOUR KING,

JESUS
