Lyrics

It was midnight in Jerusalem
Gone were the throngs
And all their songs to honor him
In Gethsemene Jesus bowed to pray
Father if it be your will
Take this cup away

Not my will but thine be done
Not my will but thine be done
Father thy will be done
If it pleases thee
Then take this cup from me
But Father thy will be done

In the palace the deal was done
The money paid the plans were made
The time had come
After three long years they'd finally get their man
But they didn't really understand

They didn't know who he was
They didn't know what they were doing
When they bound the hands of this innocent man
In the garden where he prayed
They didn't know who he was
They didn't know what they were doing
With their blinded eyes they couldn't recognize
The Son of God

And at last the Savior died
On a cross the Lamb of God was crucified
As they watched him suffer there in agony
They heard Jesus make one final plea

Father forgive them
Father forgive them
Father they know not what they do
Father forgive them
Father forgive them
Father forgive them they know not what they do

M.George2018-06-04REALLY TOUCHED MY HEART AND FEELINGS. IT BROUGHT THE BIBLE STORY RUNNING IN MY MIND. HOW JESUS IS FOND OF WE, THE HUMAN KIND. DEPTH OF "HIS" TRUE LOVE AND MERCY OVERFLOWING IS REVEALED.I LIKED THE SINGING VOICE AND MELODY OF THE SONG.
