Pilate told the crowd, “I find no fault in Him.”
Their hateful contempt was filled to the brim.
Pilate tried hard to find a solution.
Jesus did not deserve execution.
He would give them a choice, which one would it be?
Custom allowed him to set someone free.
A murder or miracle worker,
“Make up your mind which do you prefer.”
Barabbas had fought hard but he had not won.
He was in jail for crimes he had done,
His execution he was about to face.
But then someone else came to take his place.
There is a choice that we all have to make.
Jesus or Barabbas, which one do you take?
Christ died in our place to pay for our sin.
His precious blood will cleanse us from sin.
Now from my sins I am set free
Christ paid the price on Calvary.
Amazing love, how can it be?
That Thou my God shouldst die for me.*
