Lamb of God, Son of man how you suffered how You bled
With a crown of thorns pressed upon Your head
You chose the road of pain
You walked the hill of all my shame, all my shame

chorus:
In the shadow of Your cross, I will live for all my days
How could I forget the price You paid
In the shelter of Your love I will give You all my praise
In the shadow of Your cross I will stay

Man of sorrows crucified pure and holy sacrifice
As the hammer hit the nail You offered up Your life
You gave up heaven for Your own
You took our punishment alone
You were so alone

chorus

Bridge:
O King of Majesty
Forever I will sing
Of the gift You gave to me
You gave to me

chorus x2

    It reminds me of god's great love and sacrifice, and there is so much good doctrine in it. God is so wonderful!

    This song has inspired my worship again. I think we tend to get so caught up in living the christian life that we forget the awesome price jesus paid to give us this wonderful life. I love joels heart and music!
