#122: Why?

Standard
(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

Why did they nail Him to Calvary’s tree?

Why? tell me, why was He there?

Jesus the Helper, the Healer, the Friend —

Why? tell me, why was He there?

CHORUS

All my iniquities on Him were laid —

He nailed them all to the tree.

Jesus the debt of my sin fully paid —

He paid the ransom for me.

2

Why should He love me, a sinner undone?

Why? tell me, why should He care?

I do not merit the love He as shown —

Why? tell me, why should He care?

CHORUS

3

Why should I linger afar from His love?

Why? tell me, why should I fear?

Somehow I know I should venture and prove —

Why? tell me, why should I fear?

CHORUS
