    What he went through
    A crown of thorns
    What he suffered
    Pierced his brow
    How much he loved you
    Forced to tote that cross
    To withstand so much pain
    In front of his followers through town
    Born of woman he was
    Stake in the right wrist
    In the flesh created
    Stake in the left
    Lived life as a pauper because
    Bolt down that ankle
    True riches are in God's kingdom
    Immobilize the other
    Healed the sick
    Okay raise that cross
    Clothed the naked
    In between those two criminals
    So many were too quick
    The multitudes of mourners
    To assume this king was evil
    Said their prayers amid the horror
    His demise was plotted
    He said to forgive them
    By those that sought their own power
    For they knew not what they'd done
    Manmade riches were allotted
    The drenching rain came
    To those who obeyed false rulers
    Mixed in with the blood shed
    One of his disciples turned his back
    Cry not for me dear hearts
    There was one who betrayed him
    You will see me again
    Putting the true king under attack
    The human body perished
    He was sentenced to death
    Then was prepared and put in a cave
    His persecutors cheered
    Days and nights went by
    And felt holier than thou
    Before the miracle occurred
    If he is the true Lord revered
    The stone was moved
    Surely he would set himself free
    Nonbelievers didn't understand
    So they tortured him for sport
    Believers looked to the sky
    The brutality was heinous
    Behold, he had arisen
    They were blind to the biblical retort
    And all of our countless sins
    That they could not kill the spirit
    Had been miraculously forgiven
    The spirit lives on in us and
    through us forever.
    Amen.
