* The Cross Of Christ
The jeering crowd like jackals stood,
To see what must be done.
Though once they thought this man was good,
They didn't see God's Son.
They called Him Rabbi, Teacher, Lord,
Yet now He was Rome's slave.
So all His claims were now ignored,
For who was He to save?
The nails were driven deep inside...
More drops of blood soon fell...
Once lifted, hoisted, crucified,
His life was just like Hell.
Torment and torture lay ahead.
His scourged back stung and bled and bled
As briars bruised His brain.
His mother wept each passing ...
Father, Forgive Them!
Father, in Heaven, forgive them,
They know not what they do,
For their hatred is the problem,
It clouds their point of view...
Their conscience does not prove enough,
They lack Your guiding hand,
They lack the precious Saviour's love,
They do not understand...
Yet You are able to redeem,
