​Shouldn't It Be Me

This song is by Raze and appears on the album Power (1999).

Here I stand I'm a lucky man
'Cause I should have been dead
But I stand here instead I'm alive
Another one died in my place
Through grace, the gift of God
Caused my hope to revive
I did the deeds I thought the thoughts
I made mistakes causing others to hurt
I am the guilty one, so death should have come
To me not Your only Son
You died for me now I'll live for You
One hundred percent of my life I'll give you
A fresh start a brand new hope I received
Life to the full be a heavenly preview
Should have been me, should have been me
Should have been my hands hammered to
The cross on that day
Thank you I pray that you gave up Your life for free
When it should have been me

Shouldn't it be me who died in total separation
Shouldn't it be me who took the blame eternally
Shouldn't it be me who walked alone into the darkness
Shouldn't it be me who died so why do I go free

Never before have I witness such love
A prescence so huge money just can't buy
The gift of life through another One's death
I think of the cross I break down and cry
Why was there no other plan that was easier
No other way to be saved from my failure
Only the death of our Lord was sufficient
I owe so much I praise my Savior
You died for me now I'll live for You
One hundred percent of my life I'll give you
A fresh start a brand new hope I received
Life to the full be a heavenly preview

Should have been me, should have been me
Should have been my hands hammered to
The cross on that day
Thank you I pray that you gave up Your life for free
When it should have been me
