Our Savior’s Atonement


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.
