Brian Free - I'm Doing This For You lyrics

I stood there as they tried Him for crimes He hadn't done
No one else believe it, but I just knew He was the one
I slid back into the crowd, trying to go unseen
But when Pilot cried out, "Beat him", He pointed straight to me

My friends, they all cheered me as I took the whip in hand
Placing stripes upon the back of this guiltless Man
The way He turned and looked at me from my mind I can't erase
And I'll never forget the look on His face

He said, "I'm doing this for you
And I will still love you when you're through
I'm doing this for you"
Though it took me by surprise when I saw love in His eyes
He said, "I'm doing this for you"

High atop Mount Calvary, with hammer and nail
It became my duty to crucify this Man
I heard my friends gambling for His robe at my side
I couldn't turn away as He looked into my eyes

"Father forgive them", I heard Him cry aloud
"Behold the King of kings", someone mocked from the crowd
Then the ground shook and the thunder rolled
As He gave up the ghost
But until the day I die, the thing that I'll remember most

He said, "I'm doing this for you
And I will still love you when you're through
I'm doing this for you"
Though it took me by surprise when I saw love in His eyes
He said, "I'm doing this for you"

The sacrifice that day at Calvary
Was the Father's perfect plan to set man free

He said, "I'm doing this for you
And I will still love you when you're through
I'm doing this for you"
Though it took me by surprise when I saw love in His eyes
He said, "I'm doing this for you, for you"
