Representative Text

1 Was there anything that Jesus left undone, left undone,
When He came to earth to save us ev’ry one, ev’ry one?

Refrain:
Oh, no, no, no, there was nothing left undone.
Oh, no, no, no, there was nothing left undone.

2 Hear Him in the garden, saying, “Not My will, no My will.”
Oh! it was an awful mission to fulfill, to fulfill. [Refrain]

3 See Him now betrayed by Judas to His foes, to His foes.
All the terror that awaits Him, well He knows, well He knows. [Refrain]

4 See the crown upon His forehead, thorny crown, thorny crown,
How the tender flesh it pierces, pressing down, pressing down. [Refrain]

5 See Him on the cross suspended, agony, agony.
It was all that He might rescue such as we, such as we. [Refrain]
