    Why did God leave His throne
    To come to earth to make his home
    He left His glory up above
    Took human form to show His love
    To mankind who hated Him
    He willingly took all their sin
    The glorious crown that He had worn
    He traded for a wreath of thorns
    The abominations of men’s acts
    God took and laid upon Christ’s back
    To show to us His awesome grace
    He let men spit into His face
    They scourged his back and hit his head
    Beat Him til He was almost dead
    On Calvary He was crucified
    And forgave mankind before He died
    Now we can boldly go to His throne
    And call Heaven our eternal home
