In the garden where someone lied.
His friends all scattered to afar.
They beat His body to a scar.
They put a whip upon His back.
The thorny crown His brow attack.
When brought to trial before the crowd.
Their hate for Him had rung out loud.
There was no care for wrong or right.
This time would be earth’s darkest night.
He bore the sin of all mankind.
So that all might Salvation find.
Just like the movie of today.
An innocent would have to pay.
With power to heal a sickened man.
With just the touch of his dear hand.
His compassion showed; one and all.
But he alone would take the fall.
He paid the price that wasn’t due.
So silently he bore the blue.
He walked the path of men before.
The floor was green and the mile sore.
He was alone with guard at side.
On looking mockers when he died.
And so the Christ had done the same.
They spit on Him and cursed His name.
The path He walked could have been green.
But it was His blood that was seen.
I guess what I have learned to see.
Is that Somebody died for me.
He walked alone and bore my guilt.
A path to Heaven He has built.
