• A crown of thorns, it was placed on His head
    They clothed him in purple and stated their case
    "He is The King of the jews," as they slapped His face

    Pilate said, "I find no reason to charge Him"
    As soon as they saw Him they said "crucify"
    He just proclaimed to be God, He surely must die

    Yahweh, Yahweh, Yahweh

    When Pilate heard this, he was afraid
    He asked The Lord "where do You come from?"
    Don't You realize I have power to free or kill The Son?

    Jesus finally decided to answer him
    "You have no power at all over Me
    If it didn't come from above, you're too blind to see"

    Yahweh, Yahweh, Yahweh
    Yahweh, Yahweh, Yahweh

    And so, the soldiers took Jesus
    Dragging His cross to a place where He knew
    They hung a sign that would read "The King Of The Jews"

    They nailed His flesh to the wood
    He said "It's Finished" and laid down His life
    Gave up His spirit for all, He was crucified

    Yahweh, Yahweh, Yahweh
