Nailed to His Cross (Lyrics)

Verse One

When Abel’s offering cost his life

When Moses struck the stone

When David stole Uriah’s wife

A lamb could not atone

 

Channel One

But if they could have looked ahead in time

They’d see a spotless Lamb who took their crime

 

Chorus

When Jesus took the law’s decree

That said that I was lost

He carried it up Calvary

And nailed it to His cross

 

Verse Two

I stood before Mount Sinai

And heard God’s Holy Law

It showed me what I really was

I earned the wrath I saw

 

Channel Two

And when I heard the price I could not pay

Grace took me forward to another day

 

Bridge

And when my sins are read on judgment day

I will not plead a thing except to say

That…
