Below you will find the lyrics from the rest of the musical, "Shalom", which I wrote and produced in 1983.
(copyright 1983- Jim Clifford)

"The Last Supper"

On the first day of unleavend bread
When they killed the passover lamb,
Into the guest chamber
the disciples were led
By a man with a picher in his hand.

There was talk of betrayal to come;
Each questioned if he were the one.
"Tis better he had not been born",
Christ said...
"Woe unto him for betraying God's Son."
Then the child of Hell was revealed
And Christ knew that his death was nigh.
As he broke the bread and passed the cup
He spoke with a gentle sigh,

"Take, eat this is my body
Which is given for you.
Come, drink the blood of the cup.
All in remembrance do;
All in remembrance do.

For I will drink no more of the wine
Till all be fulfilled
In the Kingdom Divine.

Take, eat, this is my body
Which is given for you
Come, drink the blood of the cup
All in remembrance do
All in remembrance do."


To the garden that day
Went my Savior to pray.
"May this cup pass away,
If Thy will", He groaned.
And his friends gathered there
Slumbered on from despair.
Oh what grief He did bear
All alone.

Drops of blood streaming down
From His brow to the ground,
Soon He knew He was bound
To leave His earthly home.
But an angel like a dove
Brought Him strength from above.
To sacrifice His life in love,
All alone.

"The Trial"

Pilate:"Ye have chosen to free Barabbas
And convict the King of the Jews,
But I find no fault within Him;
What shall I do then with Jesus?
Thou must choose."

"Crucify Him", cried the mob,
"A scarlet robe He'll wear;
Thorns for His Hair;
A reeded sceptor bear."
"Crucify Him", cried the mob.

Pilate:"What evil hath he done?"

Crowd: "Crucify!

"Alone - Reprise"

Betrayed by a kiss;
By a mob judged amiss.
"I wash my hands of this",
Cried Pilate from his throne.
Those He loved turned away;
He was denied three times that day,
Oh the price He must pay, all alone.

Out of Pilate's Judgment Hall
To the Place of the Skull
"Father, please forgive them all!"
He prayed for His own.
Even God turned his head
As the stones turned to red
Then He died and He bled, All alone.


Truly this was the precious Son of God
Hanging there on that old rugged tree!
How could I have been so blinded
Not to realize
That those stripes on His back
Were laid by me?

Forgive! Forgive!
Dear Savior, all my sins
I now confess to Thee!

Forgive! Forgive!
And take me home to live with You

["For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
John 3: 16]

Forgive! Forgive!
Dear Savior all my sins
I now confess to Thee
Forgive! Forgive!
And take me home to live with you

"At the Tomb"

He is not here, He has risen,
Why seek ye the living among the dead?
Be not afraid,
See the place where He laid,
Remember the words that He said,
That into the hands of sinful men
The Son of God must be delivered - Then
Crucified and rise again,
To fulfill God's plan.
Oh, go on your way,
Tell His friends today
That He goeth unto Galilee.
There shall Ye see Him
As He said unto you,
The Risen Savior is He.

"Blessed Are Those Who Have Not Seen"

After the Lord came out of the grave
Upon the third day,
He appeared to those
Who had followed Him
In various forms and ways.
At first they did not know him
Through all their tears and grief;
But when their eyes were opened up
He upbraided them for unbelief.

"Blessed are those who have not seen
And yet they believe."
Life through His precious blood
Is ours to receive.
The lame will walk;
the blind receive their sight
By trusting in the Savior's love
With all of their might.
"Blessed are those who have not seen
Yet they believe."

Poor old doubtin' Thomas
Thought the others
Were as crazy as could be.
He said, "You'll never convince me
That He's risen from the dead
Till Him in the flesh I see."
But when He had seen
His nail scarred hands;
Thrust His fingers into His side;
He cried, "My Lord and my God,"
And the Master firmly replied.

Blessed are those who have not seen
And yet they believe."
Life through His precious blood
Is ours to receive.
The lame will walk;
the blind receive their sight
By trusting in the Savior's love
Without all their might.
"Blessed are those have have not seen
Yet they believe."

"The Ascension"

Well, He took them to the mountain
And He lifted up His hand.
He said, "To me all power is given
In Earth and Heaven grand.
Into every tribe and nation
You must reach.
The gospel message of salvation
Go and teach;
But you will not have the witness
For the hour
Unless you tarry
For the Holy Ghost and power."

Then a cloud received Him up to the sky;
But He's a-comin back bye and bye.
Will you be ready brother on that day?
Get down upon your knees,
Confess your sins away.
Get down upon your knees,
Confess your sins away.
Ask His forgiveness
And He'll take your sins away.

Closing Theme

Shalom! Shalom!
His peace is given unto you.
In peace the fruit
of righteousness is sown.
He said, "My peace I leave with you,
My peace give unto you;"
Then He died for sins to atone.
Justified now by faith
We have true peace with God
Through our Lord, Jesus Christ, Shalom!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
