If I Was There - Tourniquet

I close my eyes and think about Calvary
I see it happening right in front of me
The back that bore the whip
The head that held the crown of thorns

What if I was there
Would I even care, would I even care
Or would I only stare
What if I was there, just a face in the croud

Would I hide in shame or would I laugh out loud
Would I pity Him or think that He is just a fool
Another criminal
Or just the truth, just the truth

He is Heaven's jewel
As He marched up that hill
I can picture Him still in my mind
All the blood and the sweat on His brow

As He passed me on by, I could see in His eyes
That His pain was a gift of His love
He was the sacrifice - the Lamb
And He is the great I AM

And He paid the price for me
The price for you and me
You and me
He made the deaf to hear again
He called the sinful man a friend

He walked that hill for me
So my blind soul could see - could see
As He marched up that hillI can picture Him still in my mind
All the blood and the sweat on His brow

As He passed me on by, I could see in His eyes
That His pain was a gift of His love
I close my eyes and think about Calvary
I see it happening right in front of me

Two criminals were there
With one on either side of Him
One hurled insults - and one believed
And one believed

Which one am I [Solo: Ted]
