Where the Nails Were

"Father forgive them"
I heard you faintly say
Still, in my heart I feel so guilty
I know the truth is the debt was mine to pay
How could it be right that it happened his way
A fallen and sinful life I was leading
Now, why is Your body torn and bleeding?

Chorus:
It should've been my hands where the nails were
It should've been
It should've been my feet where the nails were
It should've been
It should've been my side that was opened
My heart that was broken
It should've been my hands
It should've been my feet where the nails were

At times I am tempted to overlook Your grace
Thinking I'm worth the love You've given
I walk like I'm earning the right to run the race
Somehow forgetting You died in my place
Still isn't long before I've stumbled
One look at the cross and I am humbled

Repeat Chorus

It should've been my hands where the nails were
It should've been
It should've been my feet where the nails were
It should've been
It should've been my side that was opened
My heart that was broken
But it was Your hands
Yes, it was Your feet
It was Your blessed hands
It was Your precious feet
It should've been my hands
It should've been my feet
Where the nails were
