In the shadow of a doorway

I hung back behind the swarm

So scared by what had happened

As I watched the mounting storm.

 

Golgotha’s hill was covered

With an angry ugly crowd

Some cursed and shouted “Crucify!”

While others wailed out loud.

 

The air seemed filled with demons

There was hatred everywhere

No one moved to stop the madness

They could only stand and stare.


With the words that “It is finished”

He expired with his last breath

And Satan was defeated at

The moment of his death.

 

As thunder roared and lightning struck

Some graves were open wide

The dead arose to witness that

God’s only son had died

 

The cross was rough and bloody

When they slipped him from its hold

And the crowd dispersed around them

As the Savior’s flesh grew cold

 

The relic shown with evidence

What was won with his life lost

Stands still today exalted

In the Triumph of the Cross
