Good Friday

This was the day
So long ago
When majority rule
Let Barabbas go
When you were subjected
To mocking and scourged
And then crucifixion
An agenda you forged
Seeing ahead
The good of mankind
You sacrificed all
For the wicked and blind
Taking upon
The sins of the world
You bore the attacks
And the hatred they hurled
But death could not keep you
Down in the grave
As your mission in life
Was coming to save
A people corrupt
A world that was lost
And you were committed
No matter the cost
So all through the years
And all through the earth
Your love has redeemed us
And granted re-birth
