WHAT WE NEEDED

Author Unknown

We have never seen all through history
That a man could save himself
Every work of man since the world began
Never kept one soul from hell
But God looked down in grace and love
And met our greatest need
By His own hand and His perfect plan
We are free, yes, free indeed

What we needed was a Savior, pure and sinless
Dying for the wrong we’d done
What we needed was a Holy Sacrifice
God’s only begotten Son
When the world all around was bound for hell
All earthly hope was lost
What we needed was the grace and mercy
God provided on a rugged cross

Many men have tried to be satisfied
By the things this world affords
They have placed their faith in another way
And rejected Christ our Lord
But the Father longs to reveal to them
What they needed all along
It is there to claim in Jesus’ name
At the cross, sin’s stain is gone

What we needed was a Savior, pure and sinless
Dying for the wrong we’d done
What we needed was a Holy Sacrifice
God’s only begotten Son
When the world all around was bound for hell
All earthly hope was lost
What we needed was the grace and mercy
God provided on a rugged cross
