This week’s song is a meditation on Christ’s arrest and crucifixion from the point of view of someone who was there, and who aided in putting him to death.

Father, Forgive Them

On a quiet night, in torches’ light
As the faithful fled, we bound and led
To a trial of lies, from jealous minds
To an unearned pain, a death of shame

In the grave he lay, poured in offering
Son of God became man of suffering
As we cried in hate, shouting to condemn
Still in love he prayed, Father forgive them

When the earth was stained, and darkness reigned
From a blinding haze of pride and rage
We began to wake with growing ache
As the knowledge hung of what we’d done

Scripture references: Isa 53, Luk 23:34, Rom 5:8
