They feared him,
They wanted him gone,
Wanted him silenced
They arrested him
They put him in chains
They mocked him
They beat him
They crowned him
With a ring of twisted thorns
They hung him on a cross
Until he died
And entombed him
But he refused to stay
On the third day
He rose from the grave
He was alive,
No longer dead
The Son of God
Author of life
Conqueror of death
