C              G         Am     Am7
Walking on the road to Jerusalem
F                    G          C
The time had come to sacrifice again
             G          Am                      Am7
My two small sons, they walked beside me on the road
    F                     G                C
The reason that they came was to watch the Lamb

       G               Am     Am7
Daddy, daddy what will we see there?
F                    G             C
There's so much that we don't understand
                  G         Am         Am7
So I told them of Moses and Father Abraham
    F                 G                  C
And then I said, Dear children watch the lamb

Am                   Am7       F       Am
For there will be so many in Jerusalem today
                    Am7      F       G
We must be sure the Lamb doesn't run away
      C            G         Am         Am7
And I told them of Moses and Father Abraham
F                 G                  C
Then I said, Dear children watch the Lamb

                    G           Am                Am7
When we reached the city I knew something must be wrong
F                    G                               C
There were no joyful worshippers no joyful worship songs
                      G               Am             Am7
I stood there with my children in the midst of angry men
           F                   Am
And then I heard the crowd cry out, 
Crucify him

Am                    Am7       F
We tried to reach the city, but we could not get away
Am                     Am7      F                      Am
Forced to play in this drama, a part I did not wish to play
Why upon this day were men condemned to die?
Am                   Am7  G                          F      
Why were we standing here where soon they would pass by?

C            G     Am            Am7
I looked and said, even now they come
F                       G      C
The first one cried for mercy, the people gave him none
                   G               Am           Am7
The second one was violent, he was arrogant and loud
            F                    G                C
I still can hear his angry voice screaming at the crowd

Am                        Am7         F     
Then someone said there's Jesus and I scarce believed my eyes
                      F                Am
A man so badly beaten he barely looked alive

Blood poured from his body from the thorns upon his brow
running down the cross and falling to the ground

                    G         Am                  Am7
I watched him as he struggled I watched him as he fell
F                            G                        C
The cross came down upon his back, the crowd began to yell
                           G              Am                 Am7
In that moment I felt such agony, in that moment i felt such loss
F                             G                    C    Am        G
Until a Roman soldier grabbed my arm and screamed, You, carry his cross!

Am                         Am7               F     
At first I tried to resist him then his hand reached for his sword
         Am        Am7      F
And so I knelt and took the cross from the Lord
G                            C                G
Placed it on my shoulder and started down the street
    Am                      Am7   F
The blood that he'd been shedding was running down my cheek

C              G                   Am                         Am7
They led us to Golgotha they drove nails deep in his feet and hands
    F                                     G              C
And yet upon the cross I heard him pray, "Father forgive them"
C                     G         Am           Am7
Oh, never have I seen such love in any other eyes 
         F                        G                     C
Into thy hands I commit my spirit he prayed and then he died

Am                           Am7            F
I stood for what seemed like years I'd lost all sense of time
Am                          F                Am7
Until I felt two tiny hands holding tight to mine
C                       G
My children stood there weeping, I heard the oldest say
                         F        G   C
Father please forgive us the Lamb ran away

       G                Am      Am7
Daddy, daddy, what have we seen here? 
F                    G             C
There's so much that we don't understand
                     G           Am                   Am7
So I took them in my arms and we turned and faced the cross
    F                 G                  C
And then I said, Dear children watch the Lamb
