To Save Us

Why die the death 
Of the worst criminals?
Why pain so intense
And a death so shamed?
The cross was the worst
The most horrible 
Way to die in those days
Jesus was made into
The ultimate scape goat
Taking all the shameful things
That corrupt and 
Draw us away from God
Jesus took our pain
He took our shame
He took the deaths 
We all deserved
And in the most gruesome
Way known in those days
Was murdered like a criminal
Because He knew
It was the only true way
To save us
