Intro: Riff #1 x2

Riff #1 x2
Why did it have to be a friend who chose to betray the Lord?
And why did he use a kiss to show them? That's not what a kiss is for.
Riff #2
Only a friend can betray a friend, a stranger has nothing to gain.
Riff #1
And only a friend comes close enough to ever cause so much pain.

Riff #1
Riff #1 x2
And why did there have to be a thorny crown placed upon His head?
It should have a royal one made of jewels and gold instead.
Riff #2
It had to be a crown of thorns because in this life that we live
Riff #1
For all who would seek to love, a thorn is all the world has to give.

Riff #1
Riff #1 x2
And why did it have to be a heavy cross He was made to bear?
And why did they nail His feet and hands? His love would have held Him there.
Riff #2
It was a cross, for on a cross a thief was supposed to pay,
Riff #1
And Jesus had come into this world to steal every heart away.
Riff #3
Yes, Jesus had come into the world to steal every heart away.

I've been into playing music since I was about 5, just about 13 years
now. If you have anything you want tabbed on guitar or bass, or if
you just feel like meeting another Christian, drop me some e-mail!!

Keep doin' the Walk, and I'll see you in Heaven!!

I grew up on Micheal Card. My Mother listened to him and Wayne Watson all the time. And This song is by far my favorite.
