those were my nails

I heard this song many Easter's ago, and ever since then, I think of it on Easter. I think it puts perfectly into words what I really can't could someone choose to take my place, for what I deserve?
Anyways, unfortunately, it wasn't listed on project playlist for me to share with you. You'll have to itunes it.... It's called "On My Cross," by FFH.
but first, read the lyrics.....really powerful. Happy Easter!

How wide is Your love
That you would stretch Your arms
And go around the world
And why for me would a Savior's cry be heard

I don't know
Why You went where I was meant to go
I don't know
Why you love me so

Those were my nails
That was my crown
That pierced Your hands and Your brow
Those were my thorns
Those were my scorns
Those were my tears that fell down
And just as you said it would be
You did it all for me
After you counted the cost
You took my shame, my blame
On my cross

How deep is Your grace
That You could see my need
And chose to take my place
And then for me, these words I'd hear you say

Father no
Forgive them for they know not what they do
I will go
Because I love them so
