When Jesus had been beaten, scorned and mocked
Then hung upon the cruel and rugged cross,
He saw the crowd and soldiers as they flocked,
Those naive to this implicated loss.
Some did not know the evil they performed
To crucify the perfect Lamb of God;
So ignorant the prophesies performed,
They did what they were told with just a nod,
And even on the cross compassion swelled
Within the Savior’s faintly beating heart;
He called His Father where in Heaven dwelled:
Forgive them, they are unaware their part.
Such love that Jesus had unto the end
To intercede as our eternal Friend.
Then said Jesus,
for they know not what they do.
And they parted his raiment, and cast lots.
Luke 23:34 KJV
