In only moment truth was seen,
Revealed this mystery,
The crown that showed no dignity,
He wore.
And the king, was placed,
For all the world to show disgrace,
But only beauty flowed from this place.

(Chorus)
Would you take the place of this man
Would you take the nails from his hands
Would you take the place of this man
Would you take the nails from his hands

He held the weight of impurity,
The father would not see,
The reasons had finally come to be to show.
The depth, of his grace,
Flowed with every sin erased,
He knew, that this was why he came.

(Chorus)
Would you take the place of this man
Would you take the nails from his hands
Would you take the place of this man
Would you take the nails from his hands

And we just don't know,
The blood and water flowed,
And in it all he shows,
Just how much he cares.
And the veil, was torn,
So we could have this open door,
And all these things, have finally been complete.

Would you take the place of this man
Would you take the nails from his hands
Would you take the place of this man
Would you take the nails from his hands
From His hands
From His hands
From His hands
From His hands (repeat&fade)

    Jesus loves us regardless of what we have done, and no matter how hard we try to push him away from us. That's why he took all of our sins upon himself and took them into the very depths of hell. We need to love him back, and show the love of jesus through others. Nothing compares to what he did for us. It's hard to say, "yes, i'd take the place of jesus in a heartbeat. " but would you really? Go through all that pain and suffering like he did? We should, but most of us wouldn't and jesus knew that. Which is why he decided to do it himself, so he didn't have to see the ones he cares for and loves even more than himself suffer that pain. We should all wake up and thank god everyday for another day to live. He gave you life, and in a moment's notice... He'll take it away.

    This song is very moving. Jesus loves us all very much & sacrificed His life for us. Without Our Father & Jesus what would have become of us? We give praise & honor Them each day that is given to us.

    "This Man" made me cry. The lyrics are so meaningful, and his voice is so unique.

    This song has really made me think: Would I take the place of Jesus on the cross? It's a really tough question...
