At The Cross

They stood beside the cross

What could they do?

Could not take him down

Till it was through

An innocent they nailed upon a tree

They say he died

To rescue you and me


He was damned

He was called the sin

The propaganda worked

The crowd was taken in

‘Crucify’ the slogan on their lips

And tanks are rolling now towards Kyiv


The bystanders went home

The day was done

Darkness overwhelmed

The shining sun

The earth was left to mourn

The blessed one

And grief is in Ukraine

The land is torn


A rock and soldiers

Guard the silent tomb

No fake news will out

From this dead room

But Easter rising

Brings the Lord of life

Go out into the world

Fight the good fight
