Can’t you hear the hammering ?
There were no angels singing
They tell me the day was black as night
For the sun had gone out of site
Out of thorns they made Him a crown
Lord, and the blood came streaming down
And I want to know, did He die in vain ?
Two thieves were at His side
They too were crucified
One cried “Lord, remember me
When we come to Eternity”
Mother Mary was at Jesus’ feet
She was bent with sorrow
Tears running down her cheeks
Lord, now I want to know…
Did He die in vain ?
