crucifixion

They tied him to a post

and whipped His naked back.

They mocked Him as they beat Him

and His blood ran nearly black.

And some just stood and watched.

They gave Him a crown of thorns,

and a great red robe to wear.

they gave Him a cross to carry

on burning pavement stones.

And some just stood and watched.

They nailed Him to a cross,

straight though His hands and feet.

they drew lots for His clothes,

and vinegar to drink inn boiling midday heat.

And some just stood and watched.

He gave hope to a dying sinner.

Eloi, Eloi He cried in fear.

In trust he gave up His spirit,

and they stabbed Him with a spear.

And some just stood and watched

He was raised again in glory

to make us one in faith.

so God can make us children.

and live with Him in grace.

And some still stand and watch.
