I Was There (I Was The One)

(A/N): Couldn't get this out of my head, so I wrote it down. Rated T for mention of violence.

I was there at the whipping post

As the soldiers drew Your blood.

I was there when they made the crown of thorns

You bore on Your brow.

I was there as they made the Cross

You would have to bear.

I was the one who held the whip.

I was the one who made the crown.

I was the one who built the Cross.

I was the one praying, 'Please forgive.'

I was there as they nailed You down.

And then it hit me again;

I was the one who hammered the nails.

I was there in the crowd

As they lifted You up on the Cross.

I was there as You drew Your last breath,

And I realized it was for me You died.
