Don't think for a moment

I never felt the pain

You can't imagine

The hurt and the shame

They put the nails through my hands

Pierced my side, please understand

It wasn't easy, but it was worth it



It wasn't easy, it wasn't easy

It wasn't easy but it was worth it

It wasn't easy, it wasn't easy

It wasn't easy but it was worth it



I didn't have to do it

But I did it anyway

'cause I really love you

So much I took your place

I died for your sins

Yes I'm the one

Don't take it lightly

What I've done

It wasn't easy, but it was worth it



I left my throne

My purpose was the cross

Shed innocent blood

I paid all cost

    When i hear it wasn't easy, i think of how even though god knew that his one and only son would be sacrificed for all our sins, jesus christ didn't just die in his sleep. He went through great pain and humiliation but he did it for us so it was worth it. He took the blame for us with great hopes that we will live for him eternally.

    Its all about the pain he bore for us on the cross of calvary; how hard it was, yet he though spotless (hebs 4:15). This is why the bible had to say; "... Endured the cross, despising the shame... (heb. 12:2).
