The Crucifixion And Resurrection
They brought Jesus to Pilate to be put to death but he found no fault in him
To the chief priests that wasn't satisfying to them
So they took Jesus to King Herod instead
They were determined to see him dead
Herod also found no fault in him and sent them away
When they left they brought him back to Pilate
Pilate said "Herod found no fault in him nor do I,but I will chastise him and set him free"
The chief priest were not about to see him released
Pilate had Jesus scouraged and the soldiers placed a crown of thorns on his head with a purple robe saying "Hail Jesus King Of The Jews"
I know Jesus had to be thinking only if you knew
When they were done they brought him out
"Crucify him" they began to shout
Pilate said "I shall release one prisoner to you shall it Barabbas or Jesus the Son of God"
They shouted Barabbas for what they were doing they knew not
Then they shouted "Away with him crucify him"
For Pilate knew he couldn't go against them
So he gave up he had finally had enough
He told them "You crucify him I wash my hands of his blood"
So they led him away and forced a man named Simon to carry his cross
Little did they know their souls would soon be lost
Jesus was put on a cross with a criminal on either side
They would keep watch till he lost his life
The soldiers and one criminal mocked him saying "If you are the Son of God save yourself"
Little did they know they were condemning theirselves
The other criminal said "Lord remember me"
Jesus said "Paradise you shall see"
Jesus said "Forgive them Father for they no not what they do"
If only they knew what Jesus had told them were true
Then he said "Father in your hands I commit my spirit"
And that was it
Darkness fell across the land
They knew now he was a rhighteous man
The sun was blackend and the ground began to shake
They knew now they had made a mistake
They said "He was the Son of God"; now they knew
And the temple was torn into two
Joseph who's heart was true
wrapped him in clean linen and placed his body in a tomb
On the third day they found the stone rolled away
They knew this was where his body did lay
Two men stood by in shining garments said "Why do you look for the living among the dead"
They couldn't believe what was just said
The men said remember what he said
"The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men,
and be crucified,and on the third day rise again"
To all of you who read this remember he did this to cleanse us of our sins
