He Took My Place Recorded by Charley Pride [3/4 time] Written by Ruth Hukill
C There was a man more than a man G7 Called Jesus Christ of Galilee
There was a place where Jesus prayed C A place that’s called Gasemine
There on a hill called Calvary F There stood a cross of agony C G7 Nailed to that cross where I should be C He took my place at Calvary
F Now I'm a child of royalty G7 C And even angels can believe F My Jesus cared so much for me G7 C He took my place at Calvary
Christ Jesus lives He lives today G7 From sin and debt He set me free
Now hand in hand each place I go C My Jesus Christ He walks with me
And when I ask how could it be F That He could care so much for me C G7 The answer comes so tenderly C He took my place on Calvary
And now my Lord the son of God G7 I share with everyone I see I give my best my all to Him C Because He gives so much to me
Now if His own you’ll wanna be F Come join His royal family C G7 Let your heart sing joyfully C He took my place on Calvary
