He Took Your Place
Recorded by Porter Wagoner
Written by Lester Flatt & Earl Scruggs

Upon the cruel tree of Calvary
C G7
Was there my precious Savior cried
Forgive them for they know not what they do
C G7 C
Oh sinner friend for you He died

His hands are gently knocking on your door
Outside He's pleading to come in
His heart is breaking as He waits for you
C G7 C
To wash you free from every sin

Those cold thorns they pierced my Savior's head
C G7
The blood was flowing down His face
In shame forsaken there He hung and died
C G7 C
Oh sinner friend He took your place

Repeat #2

Someday He's coming back to claim His own
C G7
We'll fly to Heaven's open door
The crown of life He gives on that great day
C G7 C
With Him we'll live forever more
