Was every nail
in your hands
for my neighbour?

Was every drop of blood for my neighbour?
Was every wound in your side for my neighbour?
Was every thorn in your crown for my neighbour?

Jesus, make the cross mine.

If the thorns were not for me, I cannot throw a crown at your feet.
If your wounds were not for me, I cannot be healed.
If your blood was not for me, I cannot be clean.

If the nails were not for me, 
And my sin not part 
of the sin nailed to the cross,
Then I cannot have You.
