Here is the song, written by Ronny Hinson and recorded by The Florida Boys with Ronny Hinson.

VERSE 1
Now there is no sign of the crosses
But history records there were three
Two stood because of men’s broken laws
But I know the other stood there for me
I didn’t know Peter or Judas,
But I’ve known the shame of their crimes
I’m so glad Jesus did die in my stead
But the cross in the middle should have been mine

VERSE 2
I never deserved the mercy
Or merited so much grace
And this unworthy man just can’t understand
Why that man of no wrong took my rightful place
And if you ever stop at Calvary
The blood isn’t all that you’ll find
For you’ll feel it too,
Why I feel like I do
The cross in the middle should have been mine

CHORUS
I never heard the hammer
And I never felt the nails
I never saw when the angry mob
Cursed as the prisoners fell
And they never knew this old sinner
I’m of some other place and time
The choice was all His
But the truth was and is
The cross in the middle should have been mine

TAG
The choice was all His
But the truth was and is
The cross in the middle should have been mine
