It can be hard to comprehend sometimes why people die when they do. So that can make it even more difficult to comprehend why God would allow Jesus to die on the cross, when He could have saved Him…

What He Was Dying To Say

When Jesus was a boy
With the teachers in the temple
They were so amazed
That a child could speak this way
He was so excited
About His Father’s business
There were so many things
He was dying to say
 
Then after He turned thirty
He went back to the temple
To say He was the Son of God,
The Truth, the Life, the Way
They took Him to a hill
They called the Skull
To render Him silent
But they could not prevent
What He was dying to say
 
He was dying to tell the world
How much He really cared
It wasn’t the old rusty nails
That kept Him hanging there
The expression on His face
Gave the real reason away
He had something on His heart
He was dying to say.
 
He said, “I love you.” “I love you.”
“I love you” is what He said.
He said, “I love you.” “I love you”
And He cared enough
That He wrote it down in red.
 
He was dying to tell the world
How much He really cared
It wasn’t the old rusty nails
That kept Him hanging there
The expression on His face
Gave the real reason away
He had something on His heart
He was dying to say.

Did you find the answer in the above song?

Jesus died simply because He loves us, and because God loves us.
