Verse 1
They crowned you with thorns and nailed you to a tree
Stripped you of your pride and hung you high for all to see
They pierced in your side and they bruised your body
Gentle as a lamb as you were led to die for me
Wounded for my transgressions and my iniquity
The chastisement of my peace was upon thee

Chorus
What kind of love is this?
(You left your throne on high only to be crucified)
You gave your life for me
(And when I was your enemy you cared for me)
(Someone tell me)
What kind of love is this?

Verse 2
See Jesus, you’re ruler divine sovereign king majesty
Rich in heaven still you chose to come in poverty
Though you were despised tortured and made guilty
Yet you never called one angel down to set you free
Oh Jesus I don’t understand the way you love it’s so unconditional
My humble heart and mind it needs to know…
(Repeat Chorus)

Bridge
I need to know I’ve got to know
Cos no greater love there is
For a man to lay down his life for another
But Jesus please tell me what did I do to deserve
You taking all the pain and the hurt
When it should have been me…
Jesus tell me
(Repeat chorus till fade)
