Three wooden crosses were erected that day
for the sins of the many, the One would pay.
Set on a hill, they were hung there to die
the robber, the thief and the Messiah on high.
One knew His sin, cried out in belief
the other refused, died in His grief,
the third One was special He was silent yet strong
the third one was the One who had done nothing wrong.
For He chose to be there, allowed Himself to be led
to a cross and nails and thorns on His head.
Despised and forsaken by those whom He loved
yes He was taken, but not taken advantage of.
For He knew the price and He was willing to pay,
but there in the grave, He did not stay,
three days later, resurrected in form
in physical body, from death He was torn.
Whatever response you have today
the truth is the truth, Jesus is The Way.
If you believe in the Savior, that He died for your sin
you will receive forgiveness and a new life will begin! ©
