Crowds

Mark 3:20-21

 

Stampedes or a crush

Crowds are dangerous

Unless there is control

It will be the end of us

 

Hillsborough or Burnden Park

In 1946

Bodies lying on the ground

At a sporting fix

 

Crowds can only cheer or boo

That is all their power

Chant your name and carry you

This your finest hour

 

Crowds came on in Galilee

Jesus cannot walk free

His family come to rescue him

It’s crazy can’t you see!

 

And crowds will gather finally

And hail his donkey ride

Then smelling blood will turn on him

To Golgotha they cried

 

The Lord he calls for followers

A united congregation

To witness to a wanting world

A true way to salvation
