A Promise Kept

The pharisees told Pilate lies
Provoked a mob to angry cries
Demanding Pilate to decree
That Barabbas should be set free
Accusing Jesus, scourged and tired
Of having against Rome conspired
Causing Pilate to decide
That Jesus should be crucified
And so He was.
In agonizing pain and weak
Upon the cross He was heard to speak
"They know not Father what they do",
And in a l while, saying "It is through."
And what was done? What did He do?
Why the pain of death that He went through?
He died for all, not for just a few
He died for everyone; for me; for you.
He died to prove He'd rise again
Defeating death, that He might reign
As the mighty everlasting Lord
Of all souls he saved and so adored
Ceaser's throne is long since gone
But Christ our Lord's throne still goes on
The eternal King whose word we trust
Died to meet man's need by serving us
Knowing the soul of man was lost and dead
Unless washed by the blood He alone could shed
Can you feel the spear that slashed His side
Or the burning welts from a lash of hide
The thorn crown pushed onto His head
That blurred HIs vision as He bled
Can you feel the spikes pounded through each hand
The hellish pain endured as a mortal man.
Think of the anguish He must have surely felt
As His weeping mother beneath Him knelt
Hear the weak sad sound of His laboured breath
The last He gasped before His death.
Impaled high upon a cross of shame
He suffered mortal death that we all could claim
Eternal life believing in His name
What mortal could have done the same
Lovingly withstanding such pain and shame?

Let us all then praise the God who gave
His Son (Himself) upon a cross to save
Every soul on earth from death's dark grave
