Walking on the road
to Jerusalem
the time had come

to sacrifice again.

My two small sons
they walked

beside me

on the road.
The reason that they came
was to watch

the lamb.

"Daddy, daddy
what will we see there?
There's so much that

we don't understand."

So I told them of Moses
and Father Abraham,
then I said,

"Dear children,
watch the lamb."

There will be so many
in Jerusalem today.
We must be sure

the lamb
doesn't run away!

And I told them

of Moses
and Father Abraham
and I said

"Dear children,
watch the lamb."

When we reached the city
I knew something

must be wrong.
There were no

joyful worshipers
no joyful worship songs

I stood there
with my children
in the midst of

angry men.
Then I heard the crowd

cry out,
"Crucify Him!"

We tried to leave

the city
but we could not

get away.
Forced to play

in this drama
a part I did not

wish to play.

Why upon this day

were men

condemned to die?
Why were we all

standing here
where soon they would pass by?

I looked and said,
"Even now they come"
The first one cried

for mercy
the people gave

him none.

wtl 13.jpg

The second one

was violent
he was arrogant

and loud.
I can still hear

his angry voice
screaming at

the crowd.

Then someone said
"There's Jesus"
I scarce believed

my eyes
a man so badly beaten
He barely looked alive.

wtl 17.jpg
wtl 19.jpg

Blood poured from

His body
from the thorns

on His brow.
Running down

the Cross
and falling

to the ground.

I watched as

He struggled
I watched Him

as He fell
The Cross came down upon His back
and the crowd

began to yell.

wtl 20.jpg
wtl 24.jpg

In that moment I felt such agony
in that moment I felt such loss.
Then the

Roman soldier grabbed my arm

and screamed


His Cross!"

"Carry His Cross"

wtl 25.jpg

At first I tried to resist him
but his hand reached for

his sword.
So I knelt

and I took
the Cross

from the Lord.

wtl 27.jpg
wtl 30.jpg

I placed it on

my shoulder
and started down

the street.
The blood that He'd been shedding,
was running down

my cheek.

They led us

to Golgotha
they drove nails
deep in His feet

and hands.
And on the Cross
I heard him pray
"Father, forgive them..."

wtl 31.jpg
wtl 32.jpg

Never have I seen such love
in any other eyes.
"Into Thy hands I commit My Spirit",
He prayed,
and then He died.

I stood for what seemed like years
I lost all

sense of time.
Until I felt two

tiny hands
holding tight

to mine.

wtl 34.jpg
wtl 37.jpg

My children stood

there weeping
and I heard

the oldest say,
"Father please forgive us,
the lamb
ran away!

Daddy, daddy
what have we

seen here?
There's so much

that we don't understand."

wtl 36.jpg
wtl 39.jpg

So I took them

in my arms and
we turned and faced the Cross,
and I said
"Dear children"

"Watch the lamb"
