I was guilty with nothing to say<br />
And they were coming to take me away<br />
When a voice from Heaven was heard that said<br />
&ldquo;Let him go take me instead&rdquo;<br />
<br />
And I should have been crucified<br />
I should have suffered and died<br />
I should have hung on the cross in disgrace<br />
But Jesus God&rsquo;s son took my place<br />
<br />
That crown, of thorns a spear in His side<br />
And all the pain it should have been mine<br />
Those rusty nails were meant for me<br />
Oh but Christ took them and let me go free<br />
<br />
