Christ's Passion

In the Garden of Gethsemane to the Father cried the Son

"May this cup pass from Me" but "Thy will not Mine be done"

The cock crowed a second time on that cold Jerusalem morn

It was time to accomplish to what He had been born

Although they could find no fault, they sentenced Him to die

The crowd shouted out their choice, Barrabas was their cry

He was scourged and beaten, spat upon with scorn

Mocked as on His head they pushed a crown of thorns

The cross that He shouldered weighed heavy upon Him

The burden that He carried was laden with our sin

The pounding of a hammer resonated ‘cross the land

As a Roman soldier drove the nails into His hands

He asked for their forgiveness, "for they know not what they do"

A message not for just those that day, it was for me and you

He cried out to His Father as the sky turned dark and gray

A tear fell from Heaven and God slowly turned away

An earthquake tore the temple veil as the angels cried

He commended to God His Spirit and then my Savior died

Scarlet footprints to Golgotha, crimson streams ran down the cross

Each drop of blood was precious, this blood He shed for us

They placed Him in a borrowed tomb and sealed it on that day

But on the Sabbath He had risen when the stone was rolled away

"I will be with you always", is the promise that He made

He offered us eternal life as He triumphed o'er the grave

He suffered greatly for our sins and paid the sacrifice

An awesome love was shown for us in the Passion of my Christ
