FREE CEE even in vienna they believe


Today is the day they hid our Lord's body in a cave secured with a stone
and therein they left his body hushed and all alone
they fashioned a cave into a tomb because they feared the ground could not hold him down
all this before the cross and they wove thorns into a crown

so now we hold this day as sacred to teach, reach and to learn
as we, the righteous await his promised return
His father had forsaken Him but Jesus did not care
because he realized that what mortals were doing was not the least bit fair

He bled for our sins because His Father told him He must
but there were too many men like Judas whom Jesus could not trust
when the crow was heard clearly and loudly thrice
Jesus of Nazareth knew it was time for Him to pay the price

He had already chastised the money changers for defiling His home
after 40 days and nights in a desert in which He chose to roam
then once his eyes were closed forever and they were certain he was dead
they laid Him upon a rock hoping it would become his eternal bed

ah, but how foolish those errant mortals had been
because they laid to rest perfection and a soul sans any sin
and so today I send you the blessings of a blessed soul such as you all should receive
hose who write with beauty about that which you shall ever believe
