I Was – an Easter Hymn

I Was

Words© 2014 by Mollie Pearce McKibbon



I was the whiplash and I was the thorns

That made my Saviour bleed.

It’s sin that caused him pain and suffering,

But he’s forgiven me.



He paid the price for me.

He paid and set me free.

Jesus, Jesus, my precious Lord,

He paid the price for me.


I was the hammer and I was the nails

That pierced his hands and feet.

My sins were laid upon his dear head

And he paid the full receipt.


I was the sword plunged into his body

To prove that he had died.

And I was the stone that sealed his tomb,

But he rose on Eastertide!
