  • The Hill

    Looking down from the cross at the top of the hill
    his head hung in sorrow as some sinners will
    but this man was shameless; was without sin
    yet the guilt of the whole world had been placed upon him.

    the people stood laughing; it was such a sad sight
    somehow mankind turned wrong into right.
    Save yourself someone yelled...mighty the king of the Jews
    a fake, nothing more; now that’s the real news.

    but looking down from the cross at the top of the hill
    the man they called Jesus completed God’s will
    the crowd stood in darkness when he took his last breath
    not one even noticed he gave life by his death.
    Their party was over as greed filled their eyes
    They fought for possessions to no one’s surprise

    Placed self before glory it was taken in stride
    As evil took over and numbed from inside
    A mans’ who they saw; twas just a facade
    They just couldn’t see Jesus, a God

    yes, sin had took over and eyes had grown dim
    They just couldn’t see the light shining in him.
    This man they call Jesus to them now was dead
    A cold tomb of stone was made for his bed

    Something magical happened upon the third day
    With guards in his presence, the stone rolled away.
    And now there were questions; fear, even doubt
    The grave site is empty, how did Jesus get out?

    They came up with answers, all human of course
    To hide from the truth and cover remorse
    Someone stole the body, we saw this man die
    They couldn‘t say how, they couldn’t say why

    Then Jesus returned just as prophesized
    Nail scars still upon him; a wound in his side
    He wasn’t angry, he only showed love
    And spoke of a home existing above

    He beckoned the people, answer my call
    And share in the glory meant for us all.
    The gates are now open, the home God will fill
    By the man they call Jesus, who died on the hill.
