To Be Crucified

Based in part on Mark 14:43-15:20:

In His Name - Church of Divine Mercy - Crucifixion

To Be Crucified
by Michael Romani

Testimony no matter how persistent 
Becomes question when it's inconsistent
Because of this we should speak plainly
When telling of the fulfillment of prophecy

So it was in the Messiah's final days
And so it should be in all of our ways
Let's not be the one who denies knowing
But be steadfast in our spiritual growing

Keeping faithful in all of our reverence
Despite the crowd's stated preference
Crucified as He was up on holy Calvary
This was the price paid for you and me

Jesus was alone in the gardens of Gethsemane 
Fulfilling God's call alone in His sacred agony
Doing this to keep saved all of as His family
We will never walk alone in all of our sanctimony

The Son of Man was quietly betrayed by a kiss
And even so His heart in stillness did not resist
The trust felt in the hand that Jesus was dealt
Was a victory in disguise despite the sadness felt

The Son of Man was quietly betrayed by a kiss
And even so His heart in stillness did not resist
The trust felt in the hand that Jesus was dealt
Was a victory in disguise despite the sadness felt

All of those surrounding him were ready to fight
But Jesus spoke with love and truth healing with light
Surrendering to the cup from which He must drink
Giving the measure by which we should learn to think

In that moment in which the power of darkness reigned
Only the true and brave of heart would not be feigned
Creation destroying its maker as if the roles were reversed
Fully human and yet fully devine, His truth could not be feigned

In a series of trials, the High Priests failed heir law
Procedurally held in contempt of what the Mishnah recalls
God convicted in a series of injustices then carried out
Convicts us all as witnesses beyond all vanity and doubt

Answering truthfully that Jesus is the true Son of Man
Who would one day sit at God's side and in command
Outrageously spoken in all the truth of the Divine hour
This was the fine line of that would prove God's power
