God-forsaken!

The way, the truth and the life!
The way, the truth and the life!

God-forsaken, left to die,
On calvary’s cross, God’s Son;
For me, for me, on Him sin lay,
He bore away my sin.

God-forsaken, derelict,
His Father turned away;
Our due on Him, He did inflict,
His grace in full display.

God-forsaken, love exposed,
Clothed in our sin and filth;
Made sin for us, Who never sinned,
Love in its height and breadth.

God-forsaken, Christ endured,
Golgotha’s pain and shame;
Our Saviour shed, His precious blood,
For us he took the blame.

God-forsaken, fleetingly,
For three dark hours of night;
That we might know, eternally,
God’s everlasting light.

God-forsaken, Lamb of God,
An awesome sacrifice!
The love of God for us revealed,
To bring us Heaven’s peace.

(Tune: Bays of Harris)
