Were you there when they crucified your Lord?
Did your eyes drink in sin’s grievous reward?
Gaze on the gallows on which God hung?
See his thorn-gorged brow, his torrid tongue?
Were you there when they mocked the Lord of life?
Did you feel Mary’s heart, pierced with a knife?
Watch the blood flood down, the spear burst in?
See God give his life, for mankind’s sin?
You were there when they crucified your Lord.
You are bound to him in deepest accord.
He’s flesh of your flesh, bone of your bone,
His life and his death, they are your own. – Chad Bird
