On The Road to Golgotha
I followed Jesus up toward Jerusalem that day,
He took the disciples aside, told them what was headed His way.
He said very soon I will be betrayed by one of you,
I heard Him predict exactly what the gentiles would do.
As I followed Jesus into the city,
I heard praises of “Hosanna in the Highest!”, not a word of pity,
How could anyone harm this great man that I know?
A man that will do everything for you, and not for show.
Judas betrayed Jesus to the chief priest that night,
I knew as I followed the Lord that I had to fight.
Early the next morning, he heard Jesus would be put to death,
Judas put a rope around his neck and drew his last breath.
On the road to Golgotha I heard Jesus pray,
He said “Let no man interfere or stand in the way.”
He said “Father, the time has come to glorify your Son”,
I knew then that I must not fight, but turn around and run.
Jesus died on the cross that Easter weekend,
He died in our place and took all our sin.
Today in Heaven, He sits at His Father’s side,
He says turn from sin; come to Me, there is no place to hide.
