I'll never know why, why You did what You did
You didn't have to die, but You did
You hung on the cross so that I wouldn't be lost
You took my place now You're pleading my case

You didn't have to do it, but I'm glad You did
You didn't have to do it, but I'm glad You did

You didn't have to suffer, You didn't have to give Your life
You could have come down from that cross, but You chose to die
You said Father forgive them for they know not what they do
And when they pierced Your side, you just hung, bled, and died

I'll never know why, why You did what You did
You didn't have to die, but You did
You hung on the cross so that I wouldn't be lost
You took my place now You're pleading my case

You didn't have to do it, but I'm glad You did
You didn't have to do it, but I'm glad You did

You didn't have to come down from the Father's side
But because of Your love for me, You made that sacrifice
You knew no sin but became sin for me
And all who believe can live eternally

I'll never know why, why You did what You did
You didn't have to die, but You did
You hung on the cross so that I wouldn't be lost
You took my place now You're pleading my case

You didn't have to do it, but I'm glad You did
You didn't have to do it, but I'm glad You did

You could have come down from the cross
Then my soul would be lost
But You chose to stay and Your love made a way
