I came to set the captives free. I gave them a chance to see me. But they got it wrong, didn’t hear. The wonderful truth I came to share. Father forgive them they know not what they do.
I tried to tell them the truth about love. But they shut their ears and walked away. Afraid of what this love would entail. So they set out a plan to bring me down. Father forgive them they know not what they do.
When Judas came with massed arms troupes. and on my face he placed his kiss.
They took me away and put me on trial. They mocked me and beat me and said I must die. Father forgive them they know not what they do.
When they led me away to the hill of death. And stuck cruel nails in my hands and feet. When they lifted my cross high in the sky. And jeered and taunted the king of the Jews. Father forgive them they know not what they do.
As my hour draws near and darkness descends. The man next to me speaks his final plea. You are the son of God and when you’re in heaven. Please Lord please remember me. Father forgive them for they know not what they do.
The sky grew darker and the pain increases. I now will take the whole sin of the world. This weight it engulfs me like a cloak. My father’s eyes in sorrows turn away. And all I can say is father forgive them.
The story of Easter is very well known. And we marvel at Jesus for the words that he said. BUT WHAT WILL YOU DO NOW IT’S OVER AND DONE. How will you respond to this wonderful love?
