For The Joy

For the joy set before you, for a bride dressed in white
For a kingdom that will never end you laid down your life
For the orphan and widow, for the slave and the free
For the destitute, the prostitute, the pauper and king

I can hear the hammer pounding the nails
I can hear the thunder roll
High on that hill where wrath was poured on innocence
And all my sins were paid for
When you died for me
Jesus, when you died for me

Not a thought of injustice, not a victimless crime
Precious was the blood you shed that should have been mine
And forsaking the torment as the tears burned your eyes
For the joy set before you, you laid down your life
