Shai Linne- Were You There?


His story starts at the climax, we find that time’s lapsed- don’t mind that

It’s kind of like a night cap filled with divine acts

We zoom in the lens on Christ's agony on the garden

Doomed for His friends- His tragedy for our pardon

Foreseeing the Father’s cup of wrath has Him stifled and weak

He’s sweating blood with His disciples asleep

The Prince of Peace knows the beef shall increase

Since the thief approaches with the soldiers and the chief priests

His arrest is not just- neither is the trial

While Jesus is being treated foul, He sees Peter’s denial

He’s sent to Pilate, to Herod, back to Pilate

The violence of humanity at its finest

So now He stands before the crowd doomed to die

An angry mob who’s yelling out “crucify”

The way they treat the Lord of glory is debased and it’s foul

But you miss the point if you don’t see your face in the crowd
