04/17/21 Weekend Grif.Net – When Jesus Came

When Jesus came to Golgotha, they hanged Him on a =
tree,

They drove great nails through =
hands and feet, and made a Calvary.

They crowned Him with a crown of =
thorns, red were His wounds and deep,

For those were crude and cruel =
days, and human flesh was cheap.

When Jesus came to Birmingham, =
they simply passed Him by.

They would not hurt a hair of =
Him, they only let Him die.

For men had grown more tender, =
and they would not give Him pain,

They only just passed down the =
street, and left Him in the rain.

Still Jesus cried, ‘Forgive them, =
for they know not what they do,’

And still it rained the winter =
rain that drenched Him through and through.

The crowds went home and left the =
streets without a soul to see,

And Jesus crouched against a =
wall, and cried for Calvary.
