What Held You On The Cross

This song is by Michael O'Brien and appears on the album Conviction (1996).

I know You
I've seen You all my life
A figure on a crucifix
A death without a fight
You're hanging there upon a cross
Just by Your hands and feet
The picture's clear
But the story's incomplete

So what was it
That led You to that tree
What made You lay Your body down
To save someone like me
'Cause though it's true
I know that You were God inside a man
So I guess sometimes
It's hard to understand

What held You on the cross
When You could've walked away
I see what You have done
And I just have to say
What held You on the cross
Was more than just the nails
With all the pain and suffering
And all that You had lost
Your love for me could only be
What held You on the cross

You saw me
I guess You must've known
My life would be in darkness
So You and You alone
Would bear the stripes
The crown of thorns and all humility
Lord, I see myself
But it's hard for me to see

What held You on the cross
When You could've walked away
I see what You have done
And I just have to say
What held You on the cross
Was more than just the nails
With all the pain and suffering
And all that You had lost
Your love for me could only be
What held You on the cross

I don't deserve Your mercy
Still You loved me just the same
You died for me and yet
It's hard to know...

What held You on the cross
When You could've walked away
I see what You have done
And I just have to say
What held You on the cross
Was more than just the nails
With all the pain and suffering
And all that You had lost
Your love for me could only be
What held You on the cross

Your love for me could only be
What held You on the cross
