The Lord and Savior died for me

On the cross of Calvary

And suffered for me willingly

In the Garden of Gethsemane.

Jesus paid for ev’ry wrong;

That’s why He was sent.

He suffered pain the whole night long

so we could all repent.

My Savior sacrificed,

I know He paid the price,

and I know He did it willingly for me

in the lonely night of Gethsemane.

I think of His atonement.

I think about His pain.

Because my Savior died for me,

I know I’ll live again.
