Crimson blood—flowed from the King’s brow, as He hung on the cross in pain,
Innocent of the blasphemous howls, that echoed with no refrain.
‘King of the Jews’ "ha-ha-ha" taunted the angry crowd,
As they laughed and spat and mocked the King in a feverish pitch so loud.
Hail to the King! O Mighty One! Who claims He can set us free!
Save yourself! Come down from that cross! They jeered with blatant heresy.
The King looked out at the band of men who hurled accusations at Him,
And with tears in His eyes He mercifully cried, “O Father please forgive them!”
Crimson blood—flowed from the King’s hands and also from His feet,
His blood entered through the crust of the earth and sprinkled the Mercy Seat!
When the earth did quake, the rocks were rent; and sackcloth clouds rolled in,
A Roman’s sword pierced the side of the Lord, the King who died to redeem us from sin!
Water and blood flowed from the King’s side witnessing the New Covenant deed,
Signed, sealed and delivered to us, the Lamb of God who did willingly bleed.
For through His blood, our Mighty King restored humanity to God our Creator,
The proof of His triumph over death and the grave will be evident sooner than later.
Crimson blood—flowed from the King’s side; His body lifeless; absent of breath,
The Spirit, the Water and alas’ the Blood bearing witness to the King’s saving death.
This three-fold witness reveals God’s love, His mercy and His grace,
The Ark of the Covenant bears record of this at its predestined resting place.
The Shekinah Glory, God’s very presence lies beneath the earth in a cave,
The tabernacle for the Ark that contains the testament that Christ came to save!
It will be revealed at God’s appointed time for the whole wide world to see,
That the King of the Jews’ the Lamb of God truly died for you and for me!
