Good Friday

Who killed Jesus
Many years ago
Who is guilty of a crime so low
Why did He have to die What is the reason why
Who killed Jesus I would like to know

Was it Roman soldiers
With their tools of war
Driving nails thru hands that did no wrong
Mocking and abusing Crowning Him with thorns
All the evidence is very strong

Was it Pontius Pilate
He was governor
Trying to decide the case that day
Finding that the Savior Had no fault His own
Was he guilty when he turned away

Was it Hebrew children
Proud of who they were
Shouting crucify Him at their King
Trading their Messiah For a common thief
Turning down the kingdom He could bring

When I think of Jesus
And the way He died
How upon Him all my sin was laid
All the other people Fade away from view
It’s for me the sacrifice was made

I no longer wonder anymore
I have found what I’ve been searching for
My sin demanded Hell On Him the judgment fell
I am guilty Now it’s plain to see
That it was really me
