Jesus Is My Answer

Jesus:
I know what it’s like
To be betrayed
For 30 pieces of silver
Judas gave my love away

I know what it’s like
To be bound and put in chains
To have my ministry rejected
By violence and hate

I know what it’s like
To be wrongfully accused
When those who should’ve loved me
Condemned me anyway

I know what it’s like
To be abandoned by your friends
To face false charges laid
With no defender by your side

I know what it’s like
With innocence proclaimed
To be chosen by the crowd
And crucified by their hate

I know what it’s like
To be beaten and whipped
Till your flesh is falling off
And all you want is the end

I know what it’s like
To be nailed onto a cross
Tortured to death
Though you’ve done nothing wrong

I know what it’s like
To be jeered at and abused
To have your love rejected
with the harshest of words

I know what it’s like
To die and go to hell
To take the damage and the burden
Of the sins of the world

I did it all for you my love
So you could walk free
From ALL the ravages of sin
Knowing they had died with me

I gave you a new life
That’s whole and holy just like mine
Full of everlasting love
Full of resurrection power

So lay your burdens down
Your hurts and wounded pride
In the grave I have provided
I have purchased them, they’re mine

Then go and live in the glory
of heaven come to earth
My beloved child
Embrace your rebirth

You are here by my side
At the right hand of God
With my glory, power and love
Your home today and eternally.
