Song of The Centurion

Song of the Centurion

Just another day, another cross, that’s what I supposed

I heard my soldiers laughing as they gambled for His robe

They were reckless with redemption

As they joked and rolled the dice

But to God it was no game

It was His greatest sacrifice

When I felt the earth shake

When I saw the ground break

When someone said the graves have opened wide

And the dead came back to life

When I saw the skies turn dark and gray

When I saw Him look my way

And say, “Father, forgive them, they don’t know what they do!”

I knew, it’s true, this was the Son of God

Well I knew the risk I had to take to say it out loud

I was the leader of those soldiers it was an angry crowd

Oh, but never such compassion

Had I seen in someone’s eyes

He spoke words of love to me

Even as I watched Him die

Br….

I didn’t care what the cost for my words would be

Cause I knew He shed His blood for even me

Oh what love

cho…

(tag: I had to say it, this was the Son of God

I just had to say it, this was the Son of God

Just another day, another cross, that’s what I supposed…
