Jesus Paid the Highest Price

Poor and lowly as I am
Helpless as a wand’ring lamb.
All but lost without a fold,
My waywardness has left me cold.
As Shadows fall a voice draws near.
It stirs my heart, expells my fear.
‘Tis Jesus Christ, the shepherd King,
Come to pay the price for me.
 
Bleeding Shepherd sacrificed;
Thou hast paid too high a price
To reach and save the weak and small
And wrap Your arms around them all.
When love laid down upon the cross,
Hope sprang up and called out to us,
“Sin’s great debt now satisfied,
Jesus paid the highest price.”
 
O’er mountains high and valleys low,
Your voice has led me through them all.
With ev’ry mile my hunger grows
To be with You before Your throne,
Where I will see You face to face.
My scars and sorrows then erased,
All because my shepherd King
Came to pay the price for me
 
Bleeding Shepherd sacrificed;
Thou hast paid too high a price
To reach and save the weak and small
And wrap Your arms around them all.
When love laid down upon the cross,
Hope sprang up and called out to us,
“Sin’s great debt now satisfied,
Jesus paid the highest price.”
 
-David Edwards & Regi Stone
