The Lamb on the Cross

The spitting, the mocking

The slaps in the face

The friend that denied him

Then wept in disgrace

The stripes on his back

The thorns on his head

The nails in his hands

To die in our stead

“Jesus of Nazareth,

King of the Jews”

Says the sign on the cross

For all men to view

The soldiers that gambled

The thieves at each side

The disciple he loved

The mother who cried

The thick, gloomy darkness

The cry of forsaken

The Lamb on the cross

Our sins he has taken
