Southern Gospel Music

I enjoy a variety of music, including some Southern Gospel. This past Sunday one of the special songs at church was When He Was On the Cross, I Was On His Mind. It was an absolutely beautiful arrangement done by a ladies trio. So all week that song has been going through my head. This morning I decided to look for the lyrics, so I could actually sing it and not just hum most of it! In looking for those lyrics I came across a really cool site that lists the lyrics to quite a few popular Southern Gospel songs, plus accompaniment midis! It's Dave's Southern Gospel Midi Tracks.

And here are the lyrics I was looking for!

WHEN HE WAS ON THE CROSS, I WAS ON HIS MIND

I’m not on an ego trip, I’m nothing on my own
I make mistakes and sometimes slip
Just common flesh and bone
But I’ll prove some day just why I say
I’m of a special kind
For when He was on the cross
I was on His mind

A look of love was on His face
The thorns were in His head
The blood was on that scarlet robe
And stained it crimson red
Though His eyes were on the crowd that day
He looked ahead in time
For when He was on the cross
I was on His mind

He knew me, yet He loved me
He whose glory makes the Heaven’s shine
So unworthy, of such mercy
For when He was on the cross
I was on His mind
For when He was on the cross
I was on His mind
