“You Could Have” (A Good Friday song of thanks to Jesus)

I wrote this song of thanks to Jesus on the occasion of Good Friday in 2014. I was reflecting on the truth that Jesus (God the Son) could have aborted torture and crucifixion at any time. Love (Romans 5:8) and joy (Hebrews 12:2) kept Jesus moving toward suffering. Jesus chose impossibly horrific agony for us, a reality that blows my heart wide open in gratitude and confident trust. I hope the atoning death of Jesus similarly affects and transforms you.
