High above the Crowd Below
He stood on the mountain high above the crowds below
Standing on the top of the hill
Telling the people of his Fathers love, it's radiant warm glow
The crowd below listened to him quietly and still.
When he entered the city they waved palm branches as a way to welcome him
They applauded and cheered but their praises would grow dim
For in a short bit of time their praises became jeers
They mocked him and cursed him as his eyes brimmed with tears.
He once again was high above the crowds but nailed upon a cross
Yet, he prayed to the Father to forgive them ofknew not of their loss.
The sun refused to shine and the earth around them quaked that day
For the Son of God hung on that cross, the price for our sins to pay.
When I see the cross which is empty with my Lord not hanging there
It is a reminder he paid a horrible price to lift me out of deaths snare.
The empty cross reminds me that he defeated death for me
He paved the way for you and I to enter Heaven for eternity
Look up, my friend to the Lord Jesus Christ as you start each and every day
And as you start that day, my friend make sure to take time to pray
To the one who paid the highest price for you and me and all our sin.
And thereby wipe them away so our salvation he could win
Praise God and praise the son and praise the Holy Spirit
And praise the word of god and happy are those who hear it.
