3Crosses

Were you there when they crucified my Lord?

Were you there when they crucified my Lord?

Oh! Sometimes it causes me to tremble, tremble, tremble.

Were you there, when they crucified my Lord?

Have you trembled lately? Have you seen God so high and lifted up in power that it caused you to fall down and lay helpless on the ground trembling? Have you been so awestruck in his presence that you could not speak or run or hide, that all you could do is stand there and tremble? Why not?

Were you there when they laid Him in the tomb?

Were you there when they laid Him in the tomb?

Oh! Sometimes it causes me to tremble, tremble, tremble.

Were you there when they laid Him in the tomb?

Have you died lately? Have you seen Jesus so high and lifted up on the cross that it caused you to fall down crying, lying broken on the ground trembling? Have you been so awestruck in the presence of his sacrificial death for you that you could not speak or run or hide; that all you could do is stand there and wish it was you who was dying? Why not?

Were you there when He rose up from the grave?

Were you there when He rose up from the grave?

Oh! Sometimes it causes me to tremble, tremble, tremble.

Were you there when He rose up from the grave?

Have you lived lately? Have you been starving to know the presence of God? Have you seen Jesus gesture for you to follow? Have you heard his voice calling you to go? Why not?   – Mark Powers
