The “Passover Lamb” they offered
Yet not to be defiled,
They wouldn’t enter the Praetorium
Plotting evil all the while,
Religious leaders full of the law
Couldn’t see the innocence that Pilate saw
Yet, fearing a riot and losing his position
Quickly made pilate change his decision
Beaten, scourged, and humiliated
This “King of the Jews” they berated
Jesus was offered gall to drink
In order to numb His senses
Instead the cup of God’s wrath He drank
Bearing all our offenses!
He hung on the cross
By the nails of our sin
And willingly died
That we might live again.
Dead in a tomb with no hope it seemed
The disciples resolved to relinquish their dream.
But Jesus arose and came to those
Confused and frightened ones
Confirming His Ressurection
Giving the Great Commission
