Danielle Rose - Crucify Him Lyrics

Appears on:  Mysteries

We wash our hands of the thoughts that slip through our minds.
Like Pontius Pilate, we blame others for the atrocities of our times.
Do we stay silent while the world screams out its lies?
Sell your body, buy your beauty, live at the cost of others' lives.

Crucify Him - every child torn from the womb;
Crucify Him - every judgment I presume;
Crucify Him - every prisoner on death row;
Crucify Him - will you cast the first stone?

Betrayed by friends, denied by words that spill like wine from our lips.
He drinks the cup for us, His body is our chalice.
Now His back sheds blood under the torment of the whip
We join the chorus of Jerusalem, blind to Christ's presence

Crucify Him (crucify Him) - every child torn from the womb;
Crucify Him (crucify Him) - every judgment I presume;
Crucify Him (crucify Him) - every prisoner on death row;
Crucify Him (crucify Him) - will you cast the first stone?

Lord, have mercy. Christ have mercy. Lord, have mercy on me
Forgive our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us
Have mercy Jesus

Crucify Him
Crucify Him - every judgment I presume;
Crucify Him (crucify Him)
Crucify Him (crucify Him) - will you cast the first stone?

Crucify Him - every child torn from the womb;
Crucify Him (crucify Him) - every judgment I presume;
Crucify Him - every prisoner on death row;
Crucify Him (crucify Him) - will you cast the first stone?
