Jerusalem Trilogy: Crucify Him Lyrics – The Charlie Daniels Band

This man who stands before you isn’t what he claims to be
He’s even had the nerve to criticize us Pharisees
We are the keepers of the law, the righteous of the land
He slandered and blasphemed God, he is an evil man

Crucify him, you know he’s lying
If you are who you say you are, you will have to pay the cost
Crucify him, we don’t know him
That’ll show him, if you are the son of God why don’t you come down off of that cross

We’ve taken him to Herod and we’ve brought him back again
How can you say it, Pilate, that you find no fault in him
Sir, you must condemn this man, the people want him dead
So let the blood be on our hands and on our children’s heads

Crucify him, you know he’s lying
If you are who you say you are, you will have to pay the cost
Crucify him, we don’t know him
That’ll show him, if you are the son of God why don’t you come down off of that cross
