Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul?
— Matthew 16:24-26, NIV

One more thing - this song is so incredibly powerful, especially this version. It's full orchestra and the imagery of Holy Week behind on the screens just makes it even better. If you want to worship right now, do it. But play it over the weekend. I dare you not stand up, jump up and down and raise your arms.
