I Needed A Savior

Who could say that You, Oh Lord
Should pay the debt I can’t afford?
Who could say to God, “It must be so”?
But in the Garden You ordained
The price would be Your death and shame
And so the Word became the Name
Above all other names

I needed a Savior
And You found a cross to call Your tree
Only in God’s Son is my sin undone
Hallelujah, Jesus!
I needed forgiveness
You looked at the blood and saw my sin
There on Calvary, love has ransomed me
Hallelujah, Jesus!

Who can make me wait in fear
When Jesus’ voice has called me near
Who can say the Cross was not enough?
In His death I’m sanctified
And in His life I cannot die
And now I know the Father
And the depth of His great love

I needed a Savior
And You found a cross to call Your tree
Only in God’s Son is my sin undone
Hallelujah, Jesus!
I needed forgiveness
You looked at the blood and saw my sin
There on Calvary, love has ransomed me
Hallelujah, Jesus!

I am defended by the blood
The blood I spilled
Defended by the love
Of the One I killed
Defended by the grace
That took my place
Defended by the blood
