MY ONLY SON
MY ONLY SON, by Donnie R Vaughan
IT WAS A SAD TIME WHEN THEY CAME AND TOOK MY SON,
EVERYONE KNEW HE WAS NOT GUILTY OF THE CRIMES
THEY HAD CHARGED HIM WITH.FOR ALL HIS LIFE HE ONLY DID GOOD
THINGS AND TRIED TO SHOW THE PEOPLE THE WAY TO HEAVEN,
BUT I DID NOT HEAR ANYONE SPEAK UP FOR HIM ,NO NOT ONE,
AND I CAN NOT BELIEVE HOW MANY THERE WERE TO SEE HIM PUT TO DEATH.
I REMEMBER VERY CLEARLY JUST HOW HAPPY THEY WERE TO SEE HIM BEATEN
WITH THE WHIP CALLED THE CAT OF NINE TAILS.
MY HEART CRIED OUT TO HIM BUT HE HAD TO DO THIS GREAT THING ,
FOR TO SAVE MAN THERE HAD TO BE A SACRAFICE, OR A LAMB
TO BE SLAIN AND SPILL THAT WONDERFUL BLOOD THAT COVER THE SINS OF
THE WORLD .
I WATCHED AS HE CARRIED THE CROSS UP TO THE PLACE CALLED CALVARY,
OR AS SOME LIKE TO CALL THE PLACE OF THE SKULL.
YES , HE COULD HAVE CALLED A MULTITUDE OF ANGELS TO TAKE HIM FROM
THIS PAIN AND SUFFURING, BUT HE WOULD NOT AND HE KNEW I COULD NOT
BEAR TO WATCH AS THEY NAILED HIS HANDS AND FEET WITH LARGE SPIKES
AND AS THEY LIFTED HIM UP AND LET THE CROSS DROP INTO THE HOLE
I FELT MY SPIRIT FADE TOWARD EARTH.
TO THINK HE GAVE HIS LIFE, IT WAS NOT TAKEN FROM HIM, SO THAT
MAN MAY BE SAVED FROM SIN AND FROM THE LAKE OF FIRE
MEANT FOR SATAN AND HIS ANGELS.
BUT DONíT WORRY YOU WILL SEE HIM AGAIN, BURSTING THE EASTERN SKIES
