The choices, even though you knew the lines
You'd have to cross for me
You made them anyway
Voices, as you knelt there in the garden
'Neath the olive tree
You heard me call your name
I cannot pretend to understand it all
But heaven knew the reason you were there
It was all about a man
It was all about a cross
It was all about the blood that was she'd
So I would not be lost
It was all about the love
That was bigger than a life
It was all about a freedom that was given
Through your sacrifice
'Cause you would rather die
Than to ever live without me
Helpless, that's humanity without your saving grace
So misled
Selfless, you could have called ten thousand angels
Down to take your place
But you took mine instead
I cannot pretend to understand it all
But heaven knew the reason you were there
A greater love has no one than this
That he will lay his life down for his friends
