I was with him when he rode into town
And crowds gathered 'round him like a king
Their smiling faces joined a sea of branches waving
Though they were masquerading in the end

And my heart rose in my throat
When I heard them sing
Hosanna in the highest

We went upstairs,
Broke the bread and drank the wine
From the only living vine that we would taste
And I watch them take him up the mountainside
Where he was crucified though innocent
And they mocked him
And cursed him with their mouths
And told him to come down if he was God

And my heart broke in my chest
When I heard him say
Forgive them, it is finished

I remember in the garden
When he sweat like drops of blood
And how he begged the father to let him pass the cup
I can still feel the anguish
When they pierced him in the side
And how the ground beneath us shook
Upon the very moment that he died

Three days later we found an empty grave
And the stone was rolled away where he had been

Tears of joy streamed down my face
When the angel said
Oh, fear not, he is risen
Oh, fear not, he is risen
