1.

Our Savior knows the sting of death

Much better than we all.

He took his final mortal breath

Then did his life recall.

 

The sting of death he swallowed up

Regardless of the price.

The anguish of this bitter cup

Was his, the sacrifice.

2.

Our Savior knows the weight of pain

Much better than we all.

Under its weight, his blood did rain,

He on his face did fall.

 

The King of Kings brought low with grief

That only he could bear

The agony beyond belief

The depth beyond compare.

3.

Our Savior knows the price of sin

Much better than we all.

And by the nails that pierced his skin

He helps us to recall,

 

That he must suffer but one time

By standing in our place.

Through his atoning pow’r sublime

And his abundant grace.
