""Were You There When They Crucified our Lord " ? -- Johnny Cash"
John and Doves,
This hymn is SO beautiful... we just had to share
it with all of you !
" Were You There When They Crucified my Lord ?" -- Johnny Cash and Family
How fortunate we Christians are to have the spiritual
nourishment that Holy Week gives us. Just to meditate on Isaiah 53, and to
realize what most of the world never even ponders.
That Jesus took all that
is unlovely in us and, by his death, transformed us into persons able to enter
His kingdom for all eternity.
We are of all people most gifted to have
such an understanding and appreciation.
It's what Marty Goetz tries to
convey in his song : " Can you see, on that tree, the Love of God "
