This Man Lyrics - Jeremy Camp

Review The Song (24)



In only a moment truth
Was seen revealed this mystery
The crown that showed no dignity he wore
And the king was placed for all the world
To show disgrace but only beauty flowed from this place

Would you take the place of this man
Would you take the nails from his hands
Would you take the place of this man
Would you take the nails from his hands

He held the weight of impurity
The father would not see
The reasons had finally come to be to
Show the depth of his grace flowed with
Every sin erased he knew that this was
Why he came

Would you take the place of this man
Would you take the nails from his hands
Would you take the place of this man
Would you take the nails from his hands

And we just don't know the blood and
Water flowed and in it all
He showes just how much he cares
And the veil was torn so we could have
This open door and all these things have
Finally been complete

Would you take the place of this man
Would you take the nails from his hands
Would you take the place of this man
Would you take the nails from his hands
From his hands
From his hands
From his hands
From his hands
From his hands

Great Love | Reviewer: Jen | 12/4/13

Whenever I think of this, I always think back to the night before Jesus was killed. He was litterally HORRIFIED, he knew that the next day was going to be just pain and suffering, plus ALL the guilt, shame, judgement, of sin. Jesus BECAME sin, thus he could not be near holy GOD. And I always remember Christ's humble, face-down-to-the-ground subbmission to GOD's will to save humanity from the PIT of pain and suffering that is Hell. I say that because Jesus was literally born to do this, he gave his EVERYTHING, so the cross demands our obedience to God. Let me tell you a story. There was a group of women working at a farm. One was a Christian, the rest were Muslim. The Christian starts to talk of Jesus, and who he is to her, Jesus is her beloved. The Christian then talks of how great the love of Christ is, how he suffered and died all for her. Then she asked the Muslims, "What did Muhammad ever do for you?" The Muslim woman immediatly took offense, and beat the Christian woman. Why is it that everyone takes offense of that? That my friends is the beauty of Christianity. In what other religions do you see a divine savior come from Heaven just to die to save mankind from sin?

The greatest love of all | Reviewer: Daniel thompson | 4/22/13

if we're told to die for someone we knew and love so much, and who's guilty of a crime of which the penalty is death, and the person ask u to take his place, of which u have to die, so that he might live; will you do that?. Just think about what he did for u and i,he freely gave his life for us to be free from the bondage of sin & eternal distruction in hell. That's the greatest love i've ever seen or heard of.

Would You | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/2/11

Would any of us take his place? Father GOD we really and truly thank you dying on the cross for our sins.There is no-one else like you, you truly care for us. And in return you just want us to have a relationship with you to worship and honour you and for us to walk holy for by your side.

my opinion | Reviewer: apostolicbaby96 | 3/25/10

this song is amazing and there are ppl who mite think about taking his place but in the end they would say no because of what he went through ppl really are selfish but others would say no rite off the bat but i would rather someone say no rite off the bat than for them to think about it and say no. just be honest from the start

just think about it.... | Reviewer: JC | 1/6/10

stop for a moment and think....of course we would not try to take His place. As a whole we are all selfish, and if just one person that we try to help in our life these days does not appreciate what we do, our first reaction is to turn from them and offer no further help...and that's with simple things. What if it was your turn to offer that helping hand? If nothing else, we should learn the valuable lesson, not only love one another, but help one another...even with simple things. Jesus helped us with something we could NEVER accomplish alone, and he was not only disrespected, he was hung on the cross and killed so we can live. Let's challenge one another to take up someone else's "cross" and at very least let Jesus Christ shine through us and bless another with the same blessings we have received. I could go on and on, bottom line, I have made the determination, that when the day comes, regardless of circumstances, I feel that I am ready and willing to make the stand for Christ. I pray daily for strength and help, and He's not finished with me yet. May God bless you and keep you.

Clarification for the Lyrics | Reviewer: Jordan | 6/17/09

This song is not meant to be taken as a literal "would you take His place". It's meant to be reinforce the fact that Jesus was THE only one who could have died for us. We are all human and prone to our sinful nature. If one of us COULD take His place, God would've allowed it right after Adam and Eve sinned. Jesus was pure and descended from above. It's meant to highlight what he did and how much he loved us to die for sinful mankind.

"For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. For one will scarcely die for a righteous person—though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die,but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Since, therefore, we have now been justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God." (Romans 5:6-9)

What a bad idea- taking Jesus' place | Reviewer: Steve | 5/31/09

I know the song is suppose to be an emotional staement not meant to make sense, but I still have trouble listening to it. Of course I wouldn't take His place. If I did, there would be no redemption for anyone- no one is saved. It makes no sense to even think about it even from a selfish "I'm helping Jesus" kind of way. Why would you stop Him from such a great accomplishment? Or why would you distract yourself and others from the uncompromising accomplishments of the cross to focus on feeling sorry for Jesus. Any focus on feelings should be the feeling of "awe" for being loved that much. Maybe the better question would be, "Do I love others enough to take on or share in their struggles?"- living my faith and feelings.

Love this song | Reviewer: Ofa | 4/20/09

this song | Reviewer: Capri | 10/6/08

hi i'm 16 and my name is Capri
i love this song it actually gets you thinking about all of this and asking yourself could you like that one girl said
"its not really a matter of WOULD we its a matter of COULD we."
i wrote a whole blog on my myspace about this and alot pf people don't really like to listen and see the wonders that our God has done
i know that i'm just as good as they are but listening to this song and reading the lyrics really changed my way of thinking
and i give thanks that God loves us no matter what!

COULD we? | Reviewer: Ashley | 9/1/08

in Jeremy Camp's album he explains the song like this:( Jeremy is speaking)
"You have probably heard the old saying "put yourself in his shoes." well one, day I was reading about the crucifixion, I thought that if there was a way I could take Christ's place so he would not have to go through what he endured, would I be able to? Would I do the same for him? We would all like to think that we would BUT in all actuality we could not say. He not only went through everything for me but for the whole world. I am not going to sit around and try to figure out those questions,but it makes me more grateful as I understand more of what Jesus went through for me."
In other words:
its not really a matter of WOULD we its a matter of COULD we.

Best song ever! | Reviewer: Lia | 8/8/08

Hi! My name is Lia I am 15 years old! (I'm only teasing Meghan) Anyways, Would you take the place of this man and the nails from his hands? I sure wish I could. I want to suffer for Christ sssssoooOOOOO much. I believe this song is telling us not to take for granted what Jesus did for us and is asking us to contemplate that we really wouldn't have the courage to do so. It's kind of saying "Are you sure you would really take his place?" because we don't realize that in our lives in the easiest situations we don't sacrifice ourselves for the love of others. We don't realize that those are the opportunities God gives us to live for him and take his place. So first realize that it's not the obvious things, but it's the love. And when we see that, then we might be able to say we really would crucify ourselves for Christ.

Can we suffer for jesus | Reviewer: Enoch | 5/30/08

The most awesome song of my life ,tears rolled out I just knelt down and thanked Jesus for his wonderful,countless love.Can any man take the place of Jesus and his suffering.Ok lets put this aside for a moment.let me ask the reader "if you had to die for someone like a friend or your own family member ,would you do it?" I won't be able to do it ,I haven't got so much courage .But look at Jesus ,a man with no guile had to go through all this suffering just for our sakes , to deliver us from our sins and our wickedness saying"father forgive them for they know not what they do"It is only the blood of Jesus that can save a person from his sins and make him whole .I would be glad if i could endure sufferings for Christ and die as a martyr for him.

Beautiful | Reviewer: Arianne | 4/17/08

Wow, this song is so moving. I cried the first time I heard it. It's mind-boggling to think of all He went through for us. I've never seen "The Passion," but I cry when I really think about the torture He endured in silence for us. To think that He loved me so much to go through that...you have to have a really deep love for someone to die for them like that. And He didn't do it half-way; He went all the way, took all the sins, died an excruciating death, and all for me. Me, though I'm sinful and horrible. And He died for you too. You know, as a Christian in America today, it's easy to just sort of go along with your life. Sure, I'm a Christian, but how does it affect my life? Would I REALLY be willing to die for Him? Am I willing to LIVE for Him now, even though I might sacrifice popularity or other things? Am I living to please Him because I love Him and want to do everything I can to further His Name? It's really hard to think about that. I don't want to leave my little cozy bubble, my comfort zone, because I'm afraid of being rejected. But Jesus faced ultimate rejection. He was hit, spit on, yelled at, mocked, flogged, and murdered. What is rejection from a person compared to all that? So thanks, Jeremy, for this beautiful song. God bless y'all.
