Good Friday Question

284. Good Friday Question

Were You There?

Were you there when they crucified my Lord?

Soldiers were there—they called him King and said

“Hail King of the Jews”

Soldiers were there.

They played games at the foot of the cross.

I was not there—I was not like those soldiers.

I do not treat him as a king in name only.

I do not play games as he dies—I was not there.

Were you there when they crucified my Lord?

Priests were there—they were the church and they

Helped to hang this Jesus

Priests were there.

They tried to twist things so they were right.

I was not there—I was not like those priests.

I am the church but I have never hung a Jesus.

I do not twist so I am right—I was not there.

Were you there when they crucified my Lord?

Peter was there—He said “If others fall away, I will not!”

Peter was there.

He said “Oh woman—I do not know this man”

I was not there—I was not like Peter.

I do not ever fail to keep my commitments.

I would go with you to the death—I was not there.

Were you there when they crucified my Lord?

Judas was there—he was weak and for silver he sold Jesus.

Judas was there.

He was weak and he betrayed his Lord.

I was not there—I was not like Judas.

I have never betrayed my Jesus.

I never give in to weakness—I was not there.

Were you there when they crucified my Lord?

I was there.
