Jesus Before Pilate And The Crucifixion

Neal Morse


What is this man accused of? What law did he break?
What has he done to fill you with such murdering hate?

He stirs up the people
Incites them to sin
He says they shouldn't pay the tax
To Caesar our friend

I have to know why I demand it

Oh, Jesus must die

If you have proof I must have it

Oh, hear our angry cry

I have to know why I demand it

Oh, Jesus must die

If you have proof I must have it

We're sons of Abraham
We cannot kill this man
Our law says we can't crucify
So you must send Jesus to die!

Tell me what did you do?
Don't you know that I have authority?
Are you really the Christ, the King of the Jews?

My kingdom's not of this world
I was born to do one thing only
To be a light to the world and to witness the truth

What is truth?
You have a custom that at the Passover one man
Should be released to you
Do you want the King of the Jews?

Crucify Him! Crucify Him!
We want Barabbas the murderer
We deny Him! Crucify Him!
We have no King but Caesar

I wash my hands of this whole affair
His blood is on your heads
Take Him away

Father why have You forsaken me?
Everyone's gone but my mother and John and these few
I know this is how it had to be
It's finished now and I'm giving my life up to You
