Never In A Million Years - JW Peterson

Post by kip » Fri Jul 21, 2017 2:35 pm

Hi, I've been looking for the lyrics of this song for some time. I roughly know the lyrics of the first stanza, which goes

Have you ever wondered why the Saviour came
From heav'n to earth to die on a cross of shame
Have you ever sought to know why He paid the price
Why He did to Calvary go as the sinner's sacrifice

I'm sorry if this has been asked already, but if anyone knows the lyrics to the rest of the song? Thanks lots :)

Thanks for the tip! I have the hymnal so can help with the lyrics:

Have you ever wondered why the Savior came
From heaven to earth to die on a cross of shame?
Have you ever sought to know why He paid the price?
Why He did to Calvary go as the sinner's sacrifice?

CHORUS
Never in a million years, if that could be,
Could we know the reason why
He suffered on the cross for you and me;
Willingly He died that day,
Died to take our sins away,
But never in a million years could we understand such love!

No we cannot comprehend why Jesus cared,
Why He became our friend and our sorrows shared;
O the secret will remain with God above,
But we can praise His name for the wonder of His love.
