• Abandon - It Was Love Lyrics

    From the album It Was Love (Single)

    The angel stood in awe
    At the sight they saw
    The night You were betrayed
    You could have saved yourself
    But you held back the heavens
    And let them carry You away

    You laid Your kingdom down, they handed you a crown Of thorns You were torn, but cried let Your will be done

    It wasn't nails that held You to the cross It was love, it was love, it was Your love You took our place, carried our guilt and shame All for us, all for us, all for us It wasn't nails that held You, it was love

    To think You chose this cup
    Knowing all that was to come
    Oh the grace that poured from You
    Before Your final breath
    Through Your tears You said
    "Forgive them, for they know not what they do."
    You looked up to the sky
    Let out a final cry
    It is done!
    Hope has won!
    Lord, let Your kingdom come!
