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.
